CHENNAI: Days after AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa said LTTE supporters in India were anti-nationals, she received a death threat by airmail on Wednesday. The letter, bearing Malaysia post, is from a person who claims to be the functionary of a pro-LTTE organisation.The undated letter handwritten by V Tamilmaindan, who claims to be the Asian Planning Officer of Ulaga Tamilina Pathugappu Kazhagam, Bangkok branch, with headquarters in Canada, states: “You will be eliminated if you do not change your attitude towards the LTTE and its avowed policy of separate Tamil Eelam. This is the final warning. If you don’t refrain from poking your nose in the Tamil Eelam issue, you will be killed.” The letter cites the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto as an example.“We will not hesitate to kill any person, who attempts to eradicate the LTTE or acts against the organisation,” the letter adds.Jayalalithaa’s secretary K T Karthikeyan lodged a complaint at the Teynampet police station seeking additional security for her.Based on a complaint from former minister and AIADMK functionary D Jayakumar to City Police Commissioner R Sekar, the Central Crime Branch has registered a case in this connection. Police sources said the letter reached Jayalalithaa’s Poes Garden residence around 12.30 pm. The Madras High Court has also been informed about the letter. A copy of the letter was submitted before Justice M Jeyachandran, who ordered filing of an affidavit in this regard on Thursday and said that copies of the letter be served on the DGP and the Home Secretary. On October 22, Jayalalithaa said that she continued to be on the LTTE hit list and because of that reason she had been given the security cover of NSG Commando Force as well as Z Plus category.The CoP said police had been directed to investigate into the matter expeditiously. He said the threatening letter was posted from Canada.
