Six Assam police personnel killed in a clash in the Assam-Mizoram border

Six Assam policemen have been killed in a clash in the border area of ​​Assam and Mizoram. Assam Chief Minister Himmat Bishwa Sarma said this on Twitter. The victims are border guards.

Clashes broke out between security forces and civilians on the border between Assam and Mizoram on Monday. There were even shots fired in the clash.

The incident led to an altercation between Assam Chief Minister Sarma and Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga . Union Home Minister Amit Shah had instructed the chief ministers of both the states to maintain law and order.

Assam and Mizoram have a long-running dispute. There is also a border dispute between Mizoram and Tripura. The central government of India had even intervened to settle these disputes.

Tensions were high last year due to the border dispute.

There is a 165 km long border between Assam and Mizoram. Efforts to demarcate the border have been underway since 1995, but have not been completed. That is why there are occasional disputes between the two states.

Lailapur district of Assam is one of the disputed border areas. Mizoram has been claiming a large area of ​​it. Due to this dispute, many people here have not received government facilities.

Last year, a government official in Assam said, “There are still many Ladakhs in India, where the border dispute has been going on for centuries, I don’t know how long it will last.”
