Assam Rifles personnel have arrested four armed cadres of a Kuki tribal underground organisation in Manipur’s Churachandpur district on the charge of violating ground rules of suspension of operations signed with the Union government, an official report said on Thursday. These members of the Kuki National Front were found in possession of two AK 47 rifles with 40 rounds of ammunition, two M-16 rifles with 40 rounds of ammunition, and two lethod guns with two ammunition bombs.

According to the agreement, the signatories should stay in designated camps and cannot move around carrying arms. The Kuki National Front and 19 other underground organisations in Manipur are yet to begin talks with the government.
