    Huge Cache Arms, Ammo and Explosives Recovered By Army And Police In Arunachal

    The operation was launched by troops of the Indian Army and Arunachal Police based on specific inputs about the presence of some suspected militants in the area

    The troops of Indian Army and Arunachal Pradesh Police recovered a cache of arms, ammunition and explosives from a Reserve Forest in Changlang District of Arunachal Pradesh.

    Army sources informed that based on a specific input about the presence of suspected armed National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) cadres in the forested area, the Army and the police launched an operation in the area.

    During the operation conducted in “inclement weather and inhospitable terrain”, the team succeeded in recovering a cache of weapons, ammunition and other “war-like” stores. These have been suspected to be hidden by the NSCN-IM faction.

    The recovered items included one AK-56 Rifle with three Magazines and 115 live rounds of ammunition, one Point 22 Pistol with a Magazine and three live rounds of ammunition, one Under Barrel Grenade Launcher, one Hand Grenade, one kilogram of explosives and other war-like stores.

    Army officials stated, “The recovery of this cache has dealt a severe blow to the nefarious designs of the proscribed group operating in the region. The recovered items have been handed over to Changlang Police for further investigations.”

    The team involved in the operation is currently investigating the issue on whose weapons might the recovered items be. There are chances of the weapon belonging to the NSCN or even the ULFA-I since both the outfits are active in the area.
