Fresh tension erupted along Assam-Mizoram border after residents from the neighboring state allegedly encroached at Gutguti area in Hailakandi district.

The Mizoram residents have allegedly encroached upon four kilometers inside the Assam area.

Hailakandi’s deputy commissioner Rohan Kunar Jha and police super Ramandeep Kaur on Friday visited the area to take stock of the situation.

As per reports, Mizoram residents have started some constructions four kilometers inside the Assam land in Hailakandi district.

Katlicherra MLA Suzam Uddin Laskar visited the site and demanded immediate intervention of chief minister Himanta Biswa Sharma to resolve the long pending border dispute with Mizoram.

He alleged that the Assam officials could not reach the spot and held a meeting two kilometers far from the disputed area.

Laskar held the view that the border dispute may be solved through direct discussion with the chief ministers of both the states.

He said that similar encroachment by Mizo miscreants was also occurred in the Kachurthal area.

The three districts of Barak Valley in South Assam share a 164.6 kms border with Aizawl, Kolasib and Mamit districts of Mizoram.
