Assam Says Vehicles Entering State From Mizoram To Be Checked For Drugs

Six men of the Assam Police had died in Monday’s clash with Mizoram Police

New Delhi:

To check trafficking of illicit drugs, all vehicles entering into Assam from Mizoram will be put through a check by Assam police at all border entry points of the two states, said the Assam government in a statement.

The statement follows earlier advisory where the Assam government advised its people not to travel to Mizoram as any threat to their personal safety cannot be accepted, referring to the violence at the disputed border area earlier this week. Six men of the Assam police had died in Monday’s unprecedented clash between the police of two states. Besides, 45 people were wounded.

“During the drive against illlicit drugs, it has been observed that most of the drugs were routed through Assam via Mizoram from across the border,” said the Assam order, adding this “trafficking of illicit drugs via Mizoram causes great concern and threat to society”.

“In order to check trafficking of illicit drugs, it is felt necessary to check all vehicles entering into Assam from Mizoram. Such vehicles will be thoroughly checked by personnel of Assam Police at the point of entry at all Assam-Mizoram borders,” said the order.

The vehicles, it said, will be released only after the officer concerned is satisfied that no drugs were carried in them.

The violence had started on Monday morning at the Inner Line Reserve Forest area of Cachar district. Later, each state had accused the local police of the other of intrusion and opening fire without provocation.

The clashes stem from a land dispute between the two states over “improper demarcation of the state border”.

Tension along the inter-state border in Cachar and Hailakandi districts has been escalating since October last year, with frequent incidents of burning of houses and encroachment of land.
