Kerala to strengthen intelligence wing: Home Minister

By Staff

Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 6 (UNI) Stating terrorist outfits were trying to infiltrate the state, Kerala Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishanan today said the state government would strengthen its intelligence wing by cooperating with other states.

Talking to UNI here, he said the police had confirmed the person arrested in Idukki had links with the pro-Pakistan militant group Hizbul Mujahideen.

''In the wake of the arrest, I have asked the police to keep vigil in the state,'' Mr Balakrishanan said.

Necessary instructions had been given to every police station in the state to keep a close watch on the activities of labourers from other states, he said adding system would be introduced jointly with the local bodies in the state for the purpose.

The government had also asked the Labour Department to collect the data on the whereabouts of these labourers, he said.

''Since the state has not faced much problem with terrorism, some terrorist outfits are trying to intrude into the state, considering it as a safe hideout,'' he said.

Mr Balakrishnan said the government would raid tourist centres without causing any inconvenience to visitors.
