Three militants belonging to the underground Bru Democratic Front of Mizoram (BDFM) were arrested in south Mizoram’s Lawngtlai district near Bangladesh border, state Home Minister R. Lalzirliana said.
The Bru militants were captured while trying to enter Mizoram from Bangladesh on Sunday and two AK-47 rifles and 39 rounds of ammunition were seized from them, Lalzirliana told reporters here.
The BDFM militants were involved in a number of abductions for ransom on Mizoram-Bangladesh-Tripura border areas by working with another militant outfit National Liberation Front of Tripura.
The minister said that around 10 cadres of the BDFM were involved in the recent abduction of village council member of Vaseitlang village.
