Shillong, May 22 (UNI) Meghalaya Police have arrested a hardcore militant of the banned Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council and seized ten rounds of live AK-47 ammuntion.
The ultra, identified as Banteiborlang Lyngdoh Nonglait, was arrested yesterday from the coal belt area at Nongjri, near Borsora in West Khasi Hills.
