The five were identified as Mughato Swu (35), son of Salumo, V/o Mishilimi, PO/PS Pughoboto, P/A Burma Camp United Colony, Dimapur; Richard Achumi (30) under secy of NSCN (U), son of Avito Achumi, V/O Alaphumi, PO/PS Akuluto P/A Burma Camp United Colony Dimapur; Obeto K.

Burma Camp North Block ‘B’ Dimapur

According to additional deputy commissioner of Police/PRO Dimapur, their modus operandi involved soliciting phone calls from potential but gullible customers intending to buy vehicles like JCB, dumper trucks etc. Then at the appointed time and place when the victim brought the cash for the vehicle purchase, they would rob them at gun point. In this manner one person was robbed of Rs. Six lakhs in the month of August 2018. However, on receipt of credible input that the same gang members were planning another such robbery, the police swung into action and successfully affected their arrest. In this connection,  one country-made .22 pistol with six live rounds, cash and two vehicles used for the commission of crime were seized from their possession. A case has been registered in Diphupar Police Station Diampur under relevant sections of the IPC and Arms Act for further investigation.
