Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar paid a two-day official visit to Sri Lanka on the 19th. Jayashankar had held discussions with a group of politicians including President Ranil Wickremesinghe, Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, Foreign Affairs Minister Ali Sabri and Rauf Hakeem.
A special elite security group from India was in charge of the security of the Indian delegation. The Indian Foreign Minister stayed at the Taj Samudra Hotel in Colombo.
A news has been reported that the hotel room where the Indian foreign minister stayed has been secretly infiltrated through high-tech equipment. It has been alleged that this espionage operation was carried out by an intelligence service of a country that is engaged in a constant power struggle with India.
Nowadays, hotel spying that conducts secretly has became a serious challenge to the VIPs including diplomats. However, Taj Hotel Colombo is owned by an Indian. The invasion of such a place by a hostile intelligence service makes it clear that Colombo has become a hotbed of foreign intelligence services.
Due to this situation, Indian diplomats have been strongly informed to follow special security measures if they come to Sri Lanka for official or private visits.
