Indian security forces in the eastern state of West Bengal have uncovered a large amount of weapons allegedly smuggled from a state-run ammunition factory.
A Defense Ministry spokesman, R.K. Das says the cache -- found Thursday in a house in the state capital, Kolkata, included 543 anti-personnel mines and ammunition. He said three people, including an Indian soldier, were arrested.
The spokesman said it was one of the largest recoveries of explosives in the eastern region in recent times.
Authorities are trying to determine who the arms were intended for. Many insurgent outfits and Maoist rebel groups are operating in the area.
