A special meeting on the situation in Sri Lanka was convened at the residence of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi Wednesday night. At the end of the urgent meeting Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee was quoted by the Press Trust of India as saying: "We are very unhappy at the continued killing of innocent Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka. These killings must stop." PTI also reported citing Mr. Pranab Mukherje that India asked LTTE to stop "barbaric" attempt to hold civilians hostage.

Indian Defence Minister A K Antony, National Security Adviser M K Narayanan and Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon also took part in the meeting.

The meeting was convened amid mounting pressure from Tamil Nadu parties on the Centre to stop war in Sri Lanka, the report further said.

Meanwhile, sources in Colombo said Basil Rajapaksa, the brother and adviser of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, was scheduled to leave for India shortly as a special envoy to discuss the war.

It is accused that India is running a proxy war in the island of Sri Lanka along with Colombo government against Tamil national aspirations.
