United Liberation Front of Asom separatist group’s former rebel had revealed that the LTTE had trained them in guerrilla warfare, an Indian news agency reported.

LTTE had repeatedly assured India that it would never interfere in the internal matters of India and the revealation comes as a direct violation of that promise.

Earlier it had been revealed that the LTTE supplied arms to India’s North Eastern terrorist group by smuggling arms through Bangladesh. The separatist group is attempting to form a separatist government for the oil rich frontier province.

Former seperatist spokesman Sunil Nath said that a small Ulfa team from the northeast Indian border state went to Jaffna in Sri Lanka in the early 1990s when the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) controlled the northern peninsula.

“We got in touch with the LTTE through a Tamil Nadu politician,” Sunil Nath told Indo Asian News Service in a telephone interview from Assam. “He [the politician] in turn contacted the LTTE.”

“According to Nath two separatist guerrillas were picked to spend some time training with the LTTE. They returned to India within a week. According to another former Ulfa militant, they came back ahead of time “because the LTTE training was too tough for us”.
