Earlier on June 24, a huge cache of arms and ammunition was recovered from a dense forest in the same district in Assam.
Udalguri Police carried out a secret operation in a forest area of Khemengaon and recovered the arms and ammunition.
The repeated incidents of recovery of arms and ammunition in Udalguri district have emerged as a significant development as the political scenario of BTAD is getting momentum over the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections. Though the elections for BTC have been deferred due to COVID-19 outbreak, political parties have been intensifying their activities in the area.
