On Monday, both Mizoram CM Zoramthanga and Assam CM Sarma announced the dropping of FIRs lodged by both states following inter-border clashes that killed six Assam cops last week.
The move came after Assam Police on Monday morning withdrew the case against Mizoram Rajya Sabha MP K Vanlalvena at the directive of Sarma as a 'goodwill gesture'.
Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh Tapir Gao told Outlook that the prime minister was looking into the matter very seriously following violent clashes along the Assam-Mizoram border last week.
