A huge cache of arms and ammunition besides powerful explosives of the outlawed ULFA were recovered from Shillong Vidayalaya Higher Secondary School here in Meghalaya’s capital, a police official said Sunday. The recoveries were made after Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) activists found an abandoned suitcase late Saturday night containing explosive materials and incriminating documents of the ULFA.
The suitcase was abandoned by five suspected ULFA rebels after being chased by KSU activists for their suspicious movement near the School. On being found that the suitcase contained explosive materials, the KSU activists alerted the police and further swung into action leading to the recoveries of more arms and ammunition from beneath the permanent stage of Vidayalaya Higher Secondary School at Madan Laban, East Khasi Hills district. “Two AK-47 rifles and a flash gun, 125 rounds of live ammunition, 5 kgs of RDX bomb , three grenades, six magazines, two walkie talkies and incriminating documents belonging to the ULFA have seized,” A. R. Mawthoh, the district police chief, said.
“Investigations are on and a man-hunt is on to trace the five suspected rebels,” Mawthoh said. From the seized documents, Mawthoh said, it is evidently clear that the arms and ammunition were hidden as ‘reserve weapons’ by ULFA rebels.
The weapons have been hidden by Drishti Rajkhowa, the ‘2nd Lt’ of ULFA, he said. Gun runners have made Shillong as their “rendezvous point” for arms transaction with Ne rebels.
