JharkhandÂ’s stunning seizure: US Army rifle being sold to Maoists - Indian Express
Let me guess. Weapons siphoned off from stolen NATO trucks in Pakistan, which the ISI routed to the Naxals.
Even a person in a coma would figure that one out!
this may be a isolated incident but the NIA needs to investigate as they donot know how deep this rabbit hole goes its better to be safe than sorry....... we donot want indian eastern garts to be a FATA of pakistan...........
Love that remark!
From the serial numbers on the Gun we can ask the US Army to trace the origin.
Now, now, that is an interesting development!
They must have got it either from Northeast Insurgent groups who have large quantities of M-16's and M-4's or more likely from Nepalese Maoists who stole large number these weapons from Nepalese Army Soldiers which was provided ex US army Rifles from combating Maoist insurgents.
a counterfeit that could confuse Indian agencies, a good possible work from our dear neighbor
Jharkhand: US Army rifle found with 2 men
Jharkhand: US Army rifle found with 2 men, police to probe if arms reaching Maoists
Ranchi: The seizure of a US-made assault rifle from two men in a jungle bordering Bihar in Jharkhand has created a flutter in the state with the police saying they would investigate if a network of suppliers of foreign-made weapons were reaching out to Maoists.
The police have confiscated the M16 rifle. M16 has been the primary service rifle of the US armed forces since the Vietnam War.
Apart from the rifle, the Jharkhand police have also recovered a bulletproof jacket, Rs 28 lakh, live cartridges for AK56 and 47, mobile phones and imported pistols.
An NIA team has also reached the state.
Re: Jharkhand: US Army rifle found with 2 men
NSCN etc in North-East carry lods of US made weaponry provided and funded by their religious masters in the Southern US.......there could be a connection!
Reminds me "Lord Of War" movie....
I would love to get my hands one day on a m4 carbine and shoot some rounds
Reminds me of Zaid Hamid's accusation on India saying that the equipment BLA had was of Indian origin. May be he suggested ISI to get these rifles to avoid suspicion.
Why we are not fencing Indo-Nepal border. ?
China is also a suspect.
Smell the coffee!
I thing they bought it from EBAY
Picture of the weapon recovered looked like M16 A1.. and my guess is that they got if from Vietnam, Philippines or Thailand...
if they were sourcing weapons from Nepali comrades.. then why go for an M16 A1 when you can go for G 36 D
Could have spend that money on more useful stuff..
or Machine Gun Preacher ?
When AK 47s ae so easily available in our backyard why did they have to for the American weapon?
