Border tension in Lakhimpur again


Tension is simmering in Lakhimpur district bordering Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday when unidentified armed men attacked Assam forest personnel engaged in plantation at Duluong in the Lakhimpur district.


Security forces posted along the border rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control. The forces are maintaining a strict vigil in the area.


During the first week of April, tension had flared up along the inter-state border after Arunachal Pradesh's attempt to build a community hall at Likabali in West Siang district bordering Dhemaji was foiled by the district administration.
