Hailakandi, January 6: Hailakandi District Magistrate Adil Khan has asked his Kolashib counterpart of Mizoram to take precautionary measures with reports of some miscreants threatening residents of Hailakandi living inside Assam’s territory to leave the area or face dire consequences.
“We have received information that some miscreants from Mizoram side have threatened the residents of Hailakandi living inside Assam’s territory to leave the area or face dire consequences,” said Khan.
Khan asked his counterpart to take necessary action to avoid any untoward incident along the inter-state border.
Assam and Mizoram have a long-standing boundary dispute, and there had been tension in the Hailakandi-Kolashib region several times in the past too. Trouble erupted at this particular stretch of the inter-state border in March last year.
