Two houses burned on Assam-Mizoram border





AFTER miscreants, reportedly from Mizoram, burned 

down two abandoned houses  in Assam’s Hailakandi dis-

trict last week, the state government has beefed up secu-

rity along the border between the two states. 

The police said incursions  were reported from two vil-

lages in Assam. “They constructed a house at one place 

and burned down two abandoned huts at the other,” 

Hailakandi Superintendent of Police, Ramandeep Kaur 

told this newspaper.“The matter has been al-

ready taken up at a higher level between both states. We have strengthened the BoPs 

by deploying additional forces,” she added.In two back-to-back inci-

dents a few months ago, miscreants, allegedly from Mizo-

ram, blew up two government schools in Cachar district in 

neighbouring Hailakandi.The two states have differ-

ent perceptions of the border and they have been locked in 

a bitter border dispute for years over it. 

Assam also has border dis-putes with Meghalaya, Naga-

land and Arunachal Pradesh.On May 27, Assam Congress 

MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi was shot at by alleged land-grab-

bers from Nagaland as he was visiting a border village.
