TURA, July 27 � The arrest of the 24 Achik National Volunteers Council (Breakaway) cadres has created quite a few ripples in the region, just because of the sheer number of people arrested. The arrest also led to the recovery of weapons. The arrested cadres were today presented before the court with six of the 24 being given 5 days of police custody, while the rest were sent to 10 days judicial custody.
The ANVC (B) cadres were arrested from their makeshift camp in Edenbari, about 7 km from here.
�We have strong leads on the fact that they were involved in the killing of two labourers, from near the outskirts of the town of Tura. Today too, we were able to recover some more weapons, including knives and swords from the spot, when our teams went there today�, said SP, WGH Mukesh Singh.
The six who were sent to police custody have been identified as Deva R Marak, Tengberth R Marak, Augustine G Momin, Jubil N Marak, Sallimbirth B Sangma and Matin Ch Marak.
�Interrogation of the arrested cadres is still on and we have quite a few leads into the case�, added SP Singh.
