Strongly reacting to Sri Lanka's allegations of presence of LTTE camps in the country, India today "categorically" denied existence of such camps and asked Colombo to "desist from reacting to speculative and uncorroborated reports."

We categorically deny the existence of any such camps," Official Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs said here.
