Punjab Police today claimed to have recovered two MP-5 guns, one .32 bore revolver along with 200 cartridges, on a tip off by dreaded militant Narain Singh Chaura from Verowal area of Tarn Taran district.

"It is for the first time that such sophisticated and deadly weapon has been seized from any militant organisation in the country," a police spokesman here said.

The police have already recovered a huge cache of arms including one AK-56 rifle along with one magazine and 50 alive cartridges, one .30 bore Pistol along with one magazine and 20 alive cartridges and five hand grenades from Narain Singh Chaura and an FIR was registered against him on February 27 in Mohali district.

Chaura had even visited Pakistan to meet terrorists based in the neighbouring country's Punjab province, police said adding, he was also alleged of smuggling of a huge consignment of heroine from Pakistan into India.
