NEW DELHI. Six Assam cops were killed and around 80 people, including officials, were injured in firing by Mizoram police and alleged Mizo intruders along the inter-state border on Monday as a boundary dispute festering for 25-odd years escalated into full-blown violence involving security forces and civilians on either side.

Union home minister Amit Shah asked the chief ministers of Assam and Mizoram to find a solution to the border dispute, following which both the states agreed to resolve the issue and maintain peace, according to sources.

The tragic incident elicited a spate of reactions on Twitter. While many blamed central government's "weak leadership" for the clash, others said such hostilities in north-eastern part of India only benefit our rival China.

A tensed, war-like situation at the Assam-Mizoram border. Looks like the Government is taking ‘Make in India’ to new heights.
