SHILLONG, April 2 - A huge cache of arms and ammunition has been recovered from Meghalaya�s East Garo Hills district, police said today.

Acting on a tip off, a team of officers raided Dorengkigre village in the district last night and dug out 21 rusted pistols and magazines, two walkie-talkie sets, some arrow heads and Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) literature, SP Ringran TG Momin said.

Momin suspects that GNLA militants had hidden the cache in the village a long time ago. The founding member of the militant outfit, Sohan D Shira, was gunned down at his hideout in February last. He was on the run since 2010.

Shira, who carried a reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head, was accused of killing of NCP candidate Jonathone N Sangma, ahead of the February 27 Assembly elections. � PTI
