20 Houses Set Ablaze at Assam-Mizoram Border


Tension erupted at the disputed Bairabi-Zophai area in Mizoram’s Kolasib district which is also known as Kachurthal in Assam’s Hailakandi district.

Meanwhile, miscreants reportedly set as many as 20 houses on fire along the border area of Hailakandi leaving at least 3 people injured.

Reportedly, a clash between the locals from both end started when Mizoram’s P&E dept officials went to check the illegal construction of a road in the disputed Bairabi-Zophai area were attacked by unknown miscreants from Assam.

The wounded have been admitted to a nearby hospital. The tension erupted further leading to the torching of houses belonging to residents of the border area.
