Aizawl: A huge cache of arms, including
eight US-made M-16 rifles and one .9 mm Beretta pistol, were
seized from a house rented by a Myanmarese national at Saron
Veng locality here, police said on Friday.

"The weapons were brought here from Myanmar and were
suspected to have been ordered by Dimasa rebels of the
neighbouring Assam`s North Cachar Hills," a senior police
officer told.

Besides this, 14 rounds of ammunition, one telescope,
12 sets of Chinese-made walkie talkies were also recovered
yesterday.

Investigations have been launched to arrest the arms
smugglers as the Myanmarese national Lalnempuii is residing in
her native Tahan village in Myanmar since May, the official
said.
