DIBRUGARH, Nov 27 � Four RPG (rocket propelled grenade) launchers, one carbine, five packets of explosives, thirty rounds of live ammunition and two carbine magazines were recovered from an underground pit at Sadiya by the police.
The carbine was the one that was snatched from a police battalion constable in October 2011 at Sadiya. The recoveries were a result of confessions by an alleged Maoist activist named Debajit, who was arrested from a Dibrugarh nursing home some time ago.
Following the tip-off by Debajit, police literally ploughed a field at Tokojan Village No 2 this morning, which led to the recovery. Police sources in Tinsukia said Sadiya is known to be home to quite a few Maoist terrorists.
