Explosive Arms Smuggling Unveiled in India’s North-East

In a startling revelation, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has uncovered a sinister plot involving the smuggling of weapons in the North-East region of India. The anti-terror agency has unearthed a network of ‘hawala’ channels being used to pay suppliers based in Myanmar for arms and ammunition that are illegally brought into Manipur and Mizoram.

Discovery of Illegal Weapon Smuggling

During an intensive investigation, NIA teams conducted raids at six locations, including a gun shop in the capital city of Mizoram, Aizawl. As a result of these raids, a suspect named Solomon alias Hminga was apprehended for his alleged involvement in the arms smuggling operation. Significant evidence was seized during the raids, including a large quantity of explosives, ammunition, digital devices, and incriminating documents.

Establishment of a Smuggling Network

The investigations have revealed that the accused individuals had set up a network in the border areas between Myanmar and Mizoram. This network was used to procure and transfer arms, ammunition, and explosives into Mizoram and Manipur from across the Myanmar border. One of the associates, Lalmuanawma alias Mangliana, a Myanmar national, is currently on the run.

Utilization of ‘Hawala’ Channels

Further probing into the case has unveiled the utilization of ‘hawala’ channels for making payments related to the illegal supply of weapons and ammunition. This revelation has shed light on the sophisticated methods employed by the perpetrators to evade detection and facilitate their nefarious activities.


Legal Action by NIA

The NIA had initiated legal action on December 26, 2023, by registering a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Explosive Substances Act, the Arms Act, and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). The agency’s swift action underscores the seriousness of the situation and the threat posed by illicit arms trafficking in the region.

As the investigation continues, the NIA remains committed to dismantling the illegal arms smuggling network and bringing all perpetrators to justice. The uncovering of such operations highlights the need for heightened vigilance and cooperation among law enforcement agencies to combat the menace of terrorism and organized crime.
