The order said the seven personnel were suspended for “grave negligence and dereliction of duties” after arms and ammunition had been looted from the camp three days before.

Six people have been arrested and remanded to police custody in connection with the arms looting case, the Manipur police said on Thursday.

Four Insas rifles, one AK Ghatak, two magazines of SLR and 16 small boxes of 9 mm ammunition looted from the IRB camp have also been recovered.
