Three persons including a cook employed at the Indian Institute of Management in Shilong were on Thursday arrested for allegedly having links with a militant group.
SP (city) M Kharkrang led a police team that raided the Madan Laban locality and the trio were picked up from a rented house this morning, police said.
They were identified as Debraj Dalu (21), Simal Barman (18) and Lambus Sangma (27) – all from the state’s West Garo Hills district.
One country-made shotgun was seized from the persons who were suspected to have links with the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA).
Debraj Dalu works as a private security guard and Lambus Sangma is the cook at IIM Shillong.
