SHILLONG, Feb 19 (PTI): Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today dismissed reports that his state was being used by gun-runners as a transit to supply arms and explosives to the Northeast militants.

"The state is no longer used by gun-runners. Whosoever is indulging in this has been arrested. Many of them were brought to book," Lal Thanhawla told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

"Earlier, of course it was the free state for gun-running and counterfeit currency business," he admitted.

"Before I took over all these things were happening; culprits were never brought to book. But no militants are there now, and we do not allow them to use our territory - neither from Bangladesh nor from Myanmar," the chief minister said.
