Guwahati/Kohima, Oct 14 (SocialNews.XYZ) Amid ongoing talks between the Centre and Naga outfits in Delhi, five cadres of the different factions of the NSCN have been arrested in Nagaland and Assam with arms and ammunition and two hostages freed, defence officials said on Thursday.

Two people, kidnapped by these cadres from Mishikito, were also rescued and various incriminating documents were recovered from the militants.
