Silchar: Tension is escalating along the Assam-Mizoram border after a group of miscreants from the neighbouring north eastern state pounded on a section of people in the territory of Assam.
The incident took place suddenly at Lailapur area in Cachar district when a group of Mizo miscreants started indiscriminate firing in the area terrorizing the people of Assam.
Then some of the miscreants started setting afire as many as ten big and small business establishments owned by the people of Assam.
A team of Assam Police and central para military force arrived in the spot and disposed the miscreants and it took several hours for the Mizoram police to reach the spot.
Now heavy presence of security forces has been trying to deescalate tension and more forces are being deployed in the area. Top police and civil officers from both the states are set to meet on Monday to take the situation under control.
The Mizoram government has been allegedly occupying the place which belongs to Assam and at times the miscreants keep threatening the local residents along the inter state border.
