A police team today recovered a huge cache of ammunition stashed in a number of villages in East Garo Hills district.
"A massive search operation was launched in the former strongholds of the GNLA after the recovery of the earlier stash of weapons and ammunition a few days ago," the Superintendent of Police, Ringrang TG Momin, said.
The search continued over 3 days and was spread over Dorenkigre, Chachatgre, Bawegre and Nengmandalgre, he said.
"Many villagers, aware of the terrain, helped in the search. The well-coordinated search has led to the recovery of a huge amount of ammunition from the villages of Dorenkigre, Chachatgre and Nengmandalgre, the SP said.
A total number of 2,406 assorted ammunition, 10 circuits, two remote controls and 16 charger clips were also recovered.
