Police seize Rs 28 lakh from GNLA

By Correspondent

SHILLONG, Dec 2 - Meghalaya Police on Thursday arrested two persons in South Garo Hills who deposited Rs 28 lakh on behalf of the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA).

South Garo Hills police arrested Sengchang Momin and Solly Sangma and traced Rs 28 lakh to bank accounts in Tura. �The arrested persons have confessed that the cash belonged to Baichung, Area Commander of GNLA,� the police said here.

On November 17, East Garo Hills police have traced and seized Rs 35 lakh from Batsrang and Saljepa of Williamnagar who are hardcore GNLA cadres.

In Garo Hills there has been a crackdown on militant groups such as GNLA, Achik Songna Anpachakgipa Kotok and others to thwart their attempts to deposit cash in Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations by using civilian bank accounts.

The police have issued directions to the Bank authorities to freeze these bank accounts for further investigation, the police headquarters said.

Moreover, the Union Government has issued general alert that outlawed militant groups might park their ill gotten money in bank accounts of civilians. Police have requested all the Banks in the State to inform the police in all such cases.

Police have also alerted the public not to allow their bank accounts to park terror funds belonging to militant groups and to pass on information to the police in case they are forced by any militant group or anti-social elements,� the police stated.
