Increasing seizures of Chinese weapons in Northeast India points to a greater flow of illegal arms impacting adversely on regional stability, says a Home Ministry report .

That such weapons are also being pushed - even assembled into Myanmar - is an additional cause for worry because many troubled areas of the neighbouring country border on Northeast, it adds.

As many as 423 illegal weapons, including AK-47s, M-16s, Chinese pistols and Lathodes, have been recovered so far this year in various states of Northeast.
