‘Grenade’ explosions along Assam-Mizoram border; Himanta writes to Zoramthanga

Two more ‘grenade’ explosions have been reported along Assam-Mizoram border on July 11.

According to the reports, locals of Dholakhal area in Assam’s Cachar district along the inter-state border on July 10 night heard sounds of ‘grenade explosions’ along the Assam-Mizoram border.

There is no report of any casualty in the explosions.

On Saturday, a grenade was triggered along the border while many senior officials of Assam including deputy commissioner and superintendent of police of Cachar district, were visiting the areas.

Tension erupted along the Assam-Mizoram border following the explosions. The Assam government has deployed heavy security personnel in the bordering areas.

On July 9, a high-level meeting of the chief secretaries of both Assam and Mizoram was held over state border issue.

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on July 11 said that, 2-3 blasts occurred inside the territory of Mizoram on July 10 and Assam police force has been deployed along the border.

“Yesterday, 2-3 blasts occurred within the territory of Mizoram and Mizoram police will inquiry it. Within the constitutional boundary of Assam, we are not going to take an inch of land from Mizoram rather I am willing to discuss and settle the border problem. I have written to the chief minister of Mizoram that let us take a satellite image on the position of boundary as on today and let us observe,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
