Guwahati: At least seven persons including five Myanmar nationals detained by Assam Rifles in Mizoram’s Siaha district, officials said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, based on specific information, the Lunglei battalion of 23 Sector Assam Rifles along with Mizoram Police launched an operation near Niawthlang village and intercepted the two vehicles carrying the seized items.

The recovered items include air gun, air gun pellets, combat uniforms, radio sets, tactical vests, tactical gloves, and boots worth around Rs. 16 lakh.

“The stores recovered were of military-grade and hence the same being used for anti-national activities against own people, by insurgents based in Myanmar, cannot be ruled out”, said the official.

However, five Myanmarese and two Indian nationals were apprehended in connection with the seizures.

Meanwhile, the detainees and seized items have been handed over to the Siaha Police station for further investigation and legal proceedings, officials added.
