Police recovered arms and ammunition in a pre-dawn raid on Tuesday in Assam’s Udalguri district under Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD).

The arms were recovered from Nepalpara Rubber Bagan in Udalguri district where the police found them kept hidden underground, said police officials.

Based on intelligence inputs, Udalguri police conducted a search operation and recovered the arms and ammunition.

The police team recovered one AK rifle, four pistols, two walkie talki sets and a large number of ammunition, said an official.

During the last few months, especially after the NDFB factions signed the Bodo peace accord on January 27, police have recovered a large quantity of arms and ammunition from four BTAD districts—Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri.

During this period, the Assam Police recovered 42 AK Rifles, three HK Rifles, two SLR, four INSAS rifles, two LMG/MMG, 25 pistol/revolvers, 3,506 ammunitions, 108 hand grenades, one rocket launcher, six mortar shells, one wireless set, 202 detonators and 20 kg explosives.
