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.
