There is a possibility of LTTE terrorists entering India through the sea and Tamil Nadu government has been sensitised about it, Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Monday.

"Enough precautions have been taken. The state government has been sensitised to the possible entry of militants (LTTE) through the coastline of Tamil Nadu," he told reporters here after he took over as the new Home Minister.

He said, "I think the state government is fully aware of the situation."

Asked as to when LTTE chief V Prabhakarn died, the minister said "I don't think we should speak or speculate on a person who is dead. Even the dead needs to be treated with dignity".

He said the Sri Lankan government had announced that Prabhakaran was killed on the morning of May 17th and "I think we should accept that statement."
