font size    

Bangladeshi security forces on Tuesday bulldozed two camps of Myanmar separatists in southwestern Bandarban hill district and seized huge modern heavy weapons and ammunition, reported NTV, a private television channel.

Bangladeshi border guards and army conducted a joint operation in the camps early hours Tuesday in the deep forest of Nuikhongchari sub-district of Bandarban administrative district in Chittagong Hill Tracts, bordering Myanmar, according to the report.

They dismantled the hideout of the National Liberation Front of Arakan (NLFA), which is fighting a guerrilla war for a separate state in the southwestern Arakan province of Myanmar.

The seized weapons included five M-16 rifles, one AK-17 rifle, two 303 rifles, seven 12 point bore rifles and 7,500 ammunition of various weapons. The security forces also arrested three guerrillas.

Bangladeshi security forces often make operations on camps of Arakan guerrillas and recover arms and ammunition and detain separatists who allegedly slip into deep forest in Bangladesh after fighting in Arakan province.
