The Mizoram government has accused Assam police personnel of 'stealing' construction materials from a project site near the border between the two Northeastern states.
Seven people including six Assam police personnel were killed and over 50 others injured in the clash between forces of the two North-eastern states on July 26 and a process of rapprochement is on.
The incident comes days after peace appeared to have returned at the Assam-Mizoram border
The data was shared in a report titled the 'Border Disputes in the North-East: Raging War Within' released by the Rights and Risks Analysis Group (RRAG) which highlighted that 65,729 persons were displaced between 1979 and 2021.
Several trucks had been stuck at the Assam-Mizoram border since July 26 due to a blockade following a border dispute flare-up that left six Assam police officers dead.
Miscreants vandalised several vehicles, which had started moving towards Mizoram, at Lailapur in Assam's Cachar district forcing them to turn back.
Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma deputed two ministers to talk to the assorted organisations who are not allowing trucks and vehicles to move to the hill state after Mizoram health minister in a video message said it was very difficult to manage patients who were in dire need of oxygen given the limited supply due to the blockade.
Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh, in an exclusive interview to Outlook, says that maintaining peace in his state and the entire region is a priority.
The house has asked the committee to submit its report within a period of three months.
The recent border clash between Mizoram and Assam and how it was allowed to flare up brought home many things not just about the two states but also about the region in totality that has seen too much bloodshed.
Assam and Mizoram have agreed to maintain peace in the border areas and welcomed deployment of neutral force by the Centre.
The order issued under Section 144 of CrPC did not mention when the 'drone attacks' took place, but official sources claimed that drones recently flew in from Kolasib district on the other side of the interstate boundary.
