Union Minister of State for External Affairs General V K Singh says that the decision to send the Indian Peace Keeping Force to Sri Lanka in 1987 was "a high level policy failure".

The former Army chief expressed these views at an event to discuss his autobiography titled 'Courage and Conviction'.

The Union Minister claimed that during IPKF operations in Sri Lanka, Indian forces got several opportunities to nab LTTE supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran but every time there were "instructions", which ensured him a safe passage.
