Rocket propellant grenades found in militant camp
Shillong: Five powerful rocket propellant
grenades, believed to have been passed by ULFA to a militant
group in Meghalaya, were seized Sunday by security forces
during a raid in East Garo Hills district.
Acting on revelations from five arrested cadres of the
Garo National Liberation Army, a combing operation was
launched by security forces at Soinang in the Mendipathar
police station area late last night.
A hide-out of a slain GNLA leader, Joking Momin, was
busted by the police and the five RPGs were seized from there,
superintendent of police Sylvester Nongtnger said.
The police suspects that the GNLA had procured the
explosives from the banned ULFA, which also has presence in
the area bordering Assam.
On Friday, the Meghalaya Police had gunned down four
GNLA militants, including Joking, and apprehended five others
in the militancy-affected district.
