The Myanmar residents of Chin region who took refuge in Mizoram after intensified gun-battle between the Myanmarese army and the Arakan Army in November last year have been lodged in a single relief camp at Hmawngbuchhuah village.
Earlier they were scattered across four villages in Lawngtlai district of the State.
Around 420 refugees have settled in Zochachhuah, 500 in Laitlang, 120 in Dumzautlang and 200 in Hmawngchhuah villages across the district of Lawngtlai in Mizoram.
Officials said concentrating the refugees in one single camp would facilitate providing better attention with respect to food, essential commodities and relief materials.
These Buddhist tribals belonging to the Chin community were caught between the clashes between the Myanmar army and the Arakan army close to their villages along Indo-Myanmar border close to Mizoram.
The refugees, now numbering 1,053, including 566 women belonging to 244 families, are reluctant to return to their homeland despite repeated assurances from the Myanmarese army as they fear more violence in their native country between the Myanmar Army and Arakan Army, the rebel outfit of Rohingya Muslims of Rakhaine.
They have expressed apprehension that landmines were planted along the Mizoram-Myanmar border.
While a woman lost her life to a concealed landmine and another man was seriously injured by a separate blast last month near the Mizoram-Myanmar border in the district.
