The Lunglei Battalion of 23 Sector Assam Rifles, under the aegis of Inspector General Assam Rifles (East), recovered a large cache of war-like stores from Chapi village of Siaha district on Friday.

Based on specific inputs about the possible smuggling of ammunition near Chapi Village, the Assam Rifles and Tuipang Police launched a joint operation on October 21 along the region.

The security forces intercepted and searched a kenbo bike. In the meantime, a second Kenbo bike attempted to take a U-Turn and escape from the scene.
