Tripura police on Sunday arrested three youths with arms and ammunition from southern Tripura’s Sabroom area along the India-Bangladesh border.
Police officials said the three youths were arrested with two firearms from Sabroom. Sabroom, a small town along the India-Bangladesh border, is 135 km from Agartala.
“The three were intercepted while travelling in a car in Sabroom. Two 9-mm pistols, seven cartridges and four loaded magazines were seized from them,” Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Sabyasachi Debnath told reporters here.
All three are residents of western Tripura‘s Bishalgarh, another trading city along the Bangladesh border.
The official said that senior police and intelligence officials are now interrogating the youths on their motives and backgrounds.
