The Union Home Ministry has convened a meeting of the chief secretaries of Mizoram and Assam on Tuesday to resume dialogue over the boundary dispute between the two states.
Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba will meet the chief secretaries of Mizoram and Assam and carry forward the dialogues on boundary dispute.
The Union Home ministry earlier asked the state governments of the two states to take appropriate steps to ensure law and order prevent the situation from escalating and bring the situation under control.
The home ministry also told the state governments to enforce prohibitory orders and deployment of forces wherever necessary.
The situation along the Assam-Mizoram border turned violent after police resorted to lathi-charge to control some protesting students, where among others, a journalist was also injured.
Assam’s Hailakandi district administration, bordering Mizoram, had on March 7 clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPc with immediate effect in certain areas apprehending encroachment attempts from the other side.
The prohibitory orders were imposed in Kachurthal and other areas under the Ramnathpur police station, bordering Kolasib district of Mizoram.
