A defence website had reported that India stationed its long range Agni type Missile system targeting Sri Lankaâ€™s strategic institutions.
According to the report Indian missile system targeted Sri Lankaâ€™s Colombo and Hambantota Ports, Katunayake, Ratmalana and Mattala Air Ports, Military Headquarters, Puttalam Coal plant and Kerawalapitiya-Kelanitissa oil fired Power Plants among others.
â€œWe have seen news reports in some websites and in the print media claiming that Indian missiles were targeted at Sri Lankaâ€™s strategic installations. These reports are completely baseless and fabricated,â€ the Indian High Commission in Colombo said today.
The High Commission said that India has a longstanding indigenous missile development programme and the programme is defensive in nature and is not directed against any country.
â€œSpeculation on such sensitive issues in a manner calculated to mislead, is out of tune with the spirit of the friendly and close relations India and Sri Lanka enjoy, including in the fields of defence and security,â€ the Indian High Commission said.
