    Let me guess. Weapons siphoned off from stolen NATO trucks in Pakistan, which the ISI routed to the Naxals. :rolleyes:

    Even a person in a coma would figure that one out!

    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.

    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.

    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.:laugh:

    Why we are not fencing Indo-Nepal border. ? :frusty:

    China is also a suspect.

    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 :DD
