Chennai, July 3 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu Police is conducting a probe to ascertain whether the Sri Lankan national, who was recently arrested in Kerala for possessing a forged passport, has links with any militant organisation, the office of the state Director General of Police said today.

In a release here, the DGP's office referred to a report in a Tamil daily that Udayasankar, a Lankan national arrested by Immigration Authorities at Nedumbassery Airport in Ernakulam on June 23 while attempting to board a flight to Dubai en route to London, had confessed to staying on the outskirts of Chennai city before the Assembly elections.
