Based on specific input about a cache of hidden weapons in general area of Damsodiang Phai (Daiphai) village under Maibang Police Station, a troops of 9 MADRAS along with  Assam Police personnel launched a search operation to recover the said cache on Wednesday. While searching the area outside the village in the nearby jungle, a weapon cache was found hidden underground wrapped in polythene. On digging out, it led to the recovery of four sophisticated AK-56 assault Rifles and four AK-56 magazines. Further search operation is still under progress.

The hidden cache is believed to have been hidden by the erstwhile DHD groups during the ceasefire agreement.  It is also believed that the newly formed DJNA group has been hunting to trace and recover the above recovered weapons for their heinous crimes being planned. The recovery of the weapons will be a blow for the militants in general and DJNA in particular, stated a AR press release.
