Indian intelligence agencies are conducting background checks on all Sri Lankan nationals and tourists who visited India in the last four months.

Indian media reported that special focus is being paid to ones who visited Kashmir.

The exercise comes amid reports that the Sri Lankan Army Chief claimed that terrorists who carried out attacks in Colombo visited India - Kerala, Kashmir and Bengaluru for training and also establishing links with terror groups operating in these areas.

As per the Indian Home Ministry, as many as 15,000 foreign tourists have visited Kashmir this year in the first four months and only 20 Sri Lankans visited the valley during this period.

Sources indicate if these attackers would have visited Kashmir for training, they would have travelled with some local contact.
