A primary school at Hailakandi along Assam-Mizoram border was damaged following as many as 2 bomb blasts.

Unidentified miscreants triggered the two bomb blasts at the premises of Muliwala Lower Primary School at Hailakandi in Assam.

The school is located near the Assam-Mizoram Inter-State border, 12 kilometres away from the Ramnathpur Police Station.

The twin blasts have severely damaged the school’s building as well as the drinking water tank.

The boy’s toilet, which was under construction was also badly damaged in the blasts.

No casualty or injury has been reported in the incident.

Meanwhile, the police and district administration in Hailakandi have launched an investigation into the incident.

However, the identity of those involved in the incident is yet to be ascertained.

On the other hand, security in and around the area has been beefed up following the twin blasts.

Meanwhile, the Assam Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) has slammed the BJP-led Assam Government for the incident.

The AJYCP said that negligence on part of the Assam Government to resolve the border dispute with Mizoram has resulted in such incidents taking place along the Inter-State border frequently.

Notably, violent clashes had broken out between the people of Cachar district of Assam and Mizoram’s Kolasib district in October-November last year.

Many on both sides sustained injuries in the clashes that continued for days.

However, persistent negotiations between officials of both Assam and Mizoram, even at Chief Secretarial level ensured de-escalation of tensions.
