The tension on the Assam-Mizoram border has once again escalated after the Mizoram police accused the Assam Police of damaging two temporary camps set up by mizoram policemen a few days ago. According to Mizoram Kolasib district administration, Mizoram policemen had set up three temporary camps in the troubled border area. While the Mizoram government accused Assam of damaging two of the three temporary camps, Assam Home Department officials said that the temporary camps were set up in the forest area on the Assam side.
