A security squad comprising members of the Tatmadaw and Border Guard Police detained four people suspected of being involved in the recent violent attacks in northern Rakhine State.
The suspects were found during a search of Zeepinchaung (South) Village in Maungtaw Township on Saturday.
The four detainees were Sweyaw Duri, Guramya, MV Cormoridain and Mammud Dullah, all from Zeepinchaung Village.
On the same day, security forces seized one MA-11, one cartridge and 25 rounds of ammunition.
The security forces also arrested Maung Maung Sein, an alleged financier of the violent attackers, at his home in Myoma (South) Ward-2 in Maungtaw yesterday morning.
Members of the Tatmadaw and the Border Guard Police are continuing their operations to hunt down the violent attackers who ambushed border police outposts on nine October during which nine policemen were killed.
