Imphal: Manipur Police and central armed forces recovered multiple weapons, ammunitions, drugs and cash from two cadres of Myanmar-based militant group Chin Kuki Liberation Army (CKLA), on Monday.
The two militants were apprehended from Churachandpur district along the Indo-Myanmar border.
The seized weapons included AK47, Insas, Sniper and M16 rifles along with a huge cache of ammunition. Opium weighing about 2.5 kg, Rs 4,86,500 cash and various other items were also recovered.
Earlier, the National Investigation Agency has taken up cases wherein it was particularly stated that there exists a transnational conspiracy by Myanmar and Bangladesh-based leadership of terror outfits to wage war against the Government of India by exploiting the current unrest in Manipur.
“The apprehension of CKLA cadres and the recovery of weapons has yet again underscored a transnational plot aimed at destabilizing both Manipur and our nation,” chief minister N. Biren Singh said in a social media post.
