The seven were caught during several operations conducted since Tuesday morning following inputs. Efforts are on to arrest other members of the outfit, Marak said in a statement.

The outfit was found to have ties with a militant organisation in Nagaland, he said.

The arrests were made in the midst of talks with the outlawed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council. The talks are said to be in an advanced stage.

A criminal case was registered against the seven at the crime branch police station here under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
