A case has been registered against Assam police in Mizoram’s Bairabi police station for alleged theft of construction materials.
Allegations of theft by Assam police personnel were levelled by Kolasib deputy commissioner in a letter to his Hailakandi counterpart in Assam.
“… 20th August 2021, at around 12 noon, Assam police on duty have entered Mizoram territory in Zophai, Bairabi, where the ongoing bridge construction is undertaken to connect main road with the paddy field owned by Pu Ch Chhunga, the first Chief Minister of Mizoram,” the letter read.
It added, “Here, Assam police created problems for the workers on site and stole some of the construction materials on site including pieces of iron rods.”
“A police case against theft of construction materials has been filed against them at the Bairabi police station,” the letter further read.
Meanwhile, the Kolasib DC urged his Hailakandi counterpart to not treat the incident as a boundary dispute issue.
