Meanwhile, the recovered arms and ammunition have been handed over to the Kamjong Police Station for further investigation.

It is yet to be ascertained as to of which militant outfit this cache of arms and ammunition belonged.

Notably, smugglers – be it arms or be it drugs – have been using the India-Myanmar border in Manipur as a transit route.
