Arms recovered by the C-60 commandos, indicates that they rely heavily on SLRs, Lee Enfields and AKs(clones)!!
Looks like mostly captured weapons of our forces. So many AKs too. Looks like a very successful operation with some senior leadership targetted. A very happy day for the constitution of India
The SLRs are mostly in reserve of the armed police units of India. This means that there are links that Naxals and terrorists in Nagaland and Manipur have made over the years within the department to get access to these weapons.
Raids on police outposts and police stations are not uncommon in these areas. Most of the SLRs are the bounties from such loots. Police in naxal insurgency areas have been using them for over 2 decades- so the naxals too have a sizeable inventory of SLRs and INSAS. What is worrisome is the absence of those Chinese AKs that were used in a major ambush the last time. This group must be some important one with its veteran commander but the military wing is still at largeThe SLRs are mostly in reserve of the armed police units of India.

Getting weapons out of the Constabulary is not an easy task; it requires someone from inside. Even with the smash-and-grab attacks that the commie terrorists use occasionally, such a large cache of arms is not possible to secure just like that. There is also a chance that someone or some people in the OFB are supplying the weapons in black for making some quick side-bucks.
This needs to be seriously investigated. Maybe "off the books" if necessary.
Yes I know that, but have SOG been seen with it earlier?
