A 25-year-old man was arrested after arms and ammunition were allegedly recovered from him at Thapa Daregnchi in Meghalaya's North Garo Hills (NGH) district on Thursday, police said.

Tengman D Shira was arrested during a raid conducted jointly by the district police and a team of Gorkha rifles of the army at about 2.30 AM, they said. 

The recoveries included one 7.65 mm pistol with 3 rounds (Chinese make), 9 mm pistol with 8 rounds, one Chinese pistol with 18 rounds along with 4 magazines.

SP MGR Kumar said coordinated efforts by police and army teams had resulted in containment and deterrence of arms smuggling groups in the area. The district has seen a period of peace mainly after the surrender of the entire north command of the Garo NationalLiberation Army (GNLA) early last year.
