"Mizoram Police celebrated after killing our 5 policemen", Assam CM shares video

CM of Assam took to his Twitter shared an alleged video of policemen from Mizoram celebrating after killing 5 policemen from Mizoram. He alleged that it was "sad and horrific" At least five Assam Police personnel were killed while protecting the "constitutional boundary" of the state with Mizoram. According to reports, 50 other officials of the Assam Police were injured and admitted to Silchar Medical College after the conflicts intensified near the inter-state border in Cachar district.


Let us tell you that earlier, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had claimed six police personnel were killed in the conflict, but later corrected the figure just before midnight saying that five state police personnel died while more than 50 people were injured. The long-standing dispute has its origin in a notification of 1875 issued during the British era that differentiated Lushai Hills from the plains of Cachar, and another of 1933 that demarcates a boundary between Lushai Hills and Manipur. Mizoram insists the inter-state border should be divided on the basis of the 1875 notification, a corollary to the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation (BEFR) Act, 1873.

From the very beginning, Mizoram leaders have been arguing against the division notified in 1933 claiming Mizo society was not discussed, while Assam wants that notification to be enforced. Tension reportedly splayed up again on Sunday when the huts of eight Mizo farmers were allegedly set ablaze near Aitlang stream in the trouble-torn area, DIG (Northern Range) Lalbiakthanga Khiangte, told PTI. All these huts belonged to farmers from Vairengte, the village closest to the Assam border, and were uninhabited.
