Diphu: A huge cache of arms and ammunition, suspected to be of militant outfit KDLF, was recovered from a forest area in Assam’s Karbi Anglong district, police said on Sunday.

The arms and ammunition were found buried in the forest behind a botanical garden near Diphu-Lumding Road, the police said.

The police acted on a tip-off that arms and ammunition were hidden at the spot by the self-styled chairman of Karbi Democratic Liberation Front (KDLF), Jackson Ronghang, who was killed in a gunfight with security forces in December last year, said Diphu police station officer in charge JS Khobung.

Police have been searching the area for the arms and it was finally discovered on Saturday afternoon, he said.

No arrests have been made so far in connection with the recoveries, he added.

Among the items recovered are a .22 rifle, a .303 rifle, a hand-made pistol, several grenades and detonators, magazines and explosives of different kinds.
