    Tension continues in Assam-Mizoram Border: Houses Torched

    Lailapur locals claimed that the miscreants from Mizoram have installed several gates in Vairengte, Kachudaram (Hailakandi) and other entrances to Cachar

    GUWAHATI: Tension continued in Assam – Mizoram bordering Lailapur area in Cachar district as miscreants suspected hailing from neighbouring state of Mizoram set several houses on fire.

    The incident reportedly happened on Saturday night after top police officials visited the fringe areas. Hours after the top cops returned from Lailapur area, miscreants from Mizoram’s side entered the area and burnt a few houses and stalls.

    Local sources claimed, “There was a group of around 10-12 people from Mizoram side who committed the crime. The village has been targeted by these miscreants for almost two weeks now.”

    Immediately after the incident, state police rushed to the spot. Police sources said that the situation was under control.

    They added that the miscreants had earlier thrown crude petrol bombs towards the village in Assam. Locals accused that police forces from the neighbouring state also back the miscreants and take no action on them despite repeated complaints. However, police denied the allegations.

    Residents of Lailapur also stated that the miscreants have installed several gates in Vairengte, Kachudaram (Hailakandi) and other entrances to Cachar.
