At least four people were injured and a few huts and small shops were burnt as a territorial dispute between Assam and Mizoram residents escalated on Saturday evening, with both the states approaching the Centre over the issue. The incident happened between residents of Lailapur village in Cachar district in Assam and residents of localities near Vairengte in Kolasib district of Mizoram. “The issue has been taken up with the Government of India. Hopefully, it should be settled soon. Special DGP (Border) has been advised to visit the affected area. Mizoram held an emergency cabinet meeting on the issue on Sunday. “I sincerely request everyone to maintain peace and to kindly not bypass any administrative proceedings,” Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga tweeted. H Lalthangliana, the DC of Mizoram’s Kolasib district, said three persons have been injured on the the Mizoram side, with one of them critical and under treatment at a hospital.BL Meena, the SP of Assam’s Cachar district, said things were under control. “There is tension right now — but things are under control. One person has been injured on Assam side. There has been no casualty but some fake news is circulating about it on social media,” Meena said confirming the burning of temporary huts and shops. Meanwhile, a bureaucratic tussle is on between Mizoram and Tripura over Phuldungsei a small village on the Jampui Hills on the inter-state border. Mizoram has imposed prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC on public movement in the area while Tripura has reacted sharply to the order, claiming Phuldungsei was an integral part of the state.
