The Centre on Wednesday tried to defuse the inter-state border tension between Assam and Mizoram by asking the chief secretaries and DGPs of the two states to make way for the deployment of a “neutral” Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) along the disputed stretch.
Union home secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla met Assam chief secretary Jishnu Baruah and DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta and their respective Mizoram counterparts Lalnunmawia Chuaungo and SBK Singh in the capital to review the situation in the wake of the border violence. Sources in Assam police told TOI late Wednesday that Mizoram police were yet to vacate the area.
