Indian Police arrested a former LTTE carder and seized 75 cyanide capsules, 300 grams of cyanide, four Global Positioning System sets and seven mobile phones at Uchipulli area in Tamil Nadu.
The seizure of the suicide pills carried by the LTTE carder tied around his neck triggered speculation that the LTTE was trying to revive the movement after it was defeated in 2009.
The police also seized seven mobile phones, Indian and Sri Lankan currency, driving licences from the LTTE carder, identified as 39 year old K Krishnakumar, who had served in the LTTE in the 1990s and came to Tamil Nadu in 2009.
