The National Investigation Agency has arrested another person in connection with the recovery of more than 2,400 kg of explosives meant for a Myanmar-based group fighting the government, an official said.
Lalringsanga (54) was arrested on November 21 from Aizawl in connection with the case, a spokesperson of the federal agency said on Tuesday.
The NIA said the case relates to the recovery of 2,421 kg of explosives, 1,000 detonators, 4,500 meters of detonating wire and cash — Rs 73,500 and over 9.35 lakh Myanmar kyat — from a car at Tipa in Mizoram on January 21.
Three men traveling in the vehicle — Sangkima (Myanmar national), MC Lallungrualpuia and Lalthlengliana — were arrested and a case was registered under the Explosive Substances Act and the Foreigners Act at Tipa police station.
The NIA re-registered the case on March 21 and its investigations revealed that Lalringsanga was linked to buy explosives from Aizawl and supply them to his Myanmarese counterparts.
“The book was meant for the Myanmar-based outfit, suspected to be the Chin National Front (CNF), which was in the process of accumulating arms and ammunition to resist the Myanmar government,” the NIA said.
