Aizawl: Four militants belonging to the Bru National Army (BNA) were arrested with arms and ammunition from Cachar district in Assam, police said here Friday.
Four AK-47 assault rifles, 122 rounds of ammunition, two double-barrel guns, one 9 mm pistol and four mobile phones were seized from the militants after they were caught by Assam Rifles on May 4.
A team of Mizoram police officials have gone to the Dholai Police Station in Cachar to take custody of the militants wanted in connection with several crimes in Mizoram.
The leader of the group Lalthazuala was accused of being involved in the murder of Zarzokima of Bungthuam village on November 13, 2009.
The murder not only derailed the proposed repatriation of Bru refugees from six Tripura relief camps, but also triggered another exodus of Bru families to Tripura from Mizoram.
