Tamil Nadu went on high alert post reports of terrorists’ infiltration into the state by sea, from Sri Lanka and that they moved to different cities, including Coimbatore. Security has been tightened across the state following intelligence inputs that members were of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group.
Meanwhile, the photos of people who were claimed to be suspected terrorists (believed to be released by the Police department) started to spread around the social media, and even some renowned media houses started to circulate the released photos on their channels and websites.
It appears that the circulated photos were fake and not officially released by the Police department of Tamil Nadu. A senior official from DGP office denied releasing any such photos.
