Six Assam cops killed, 80 hurt in border clash with Mizoram
GUWAHATI: Six Assam cops were killed and around 80 people, including offi als, were injured in firing by Mizoram police and alleged Mizo intruders along the inter-state border in Cachar’s lapur on Monday as a boundary dispute festering for 25-odd years escted into full-blown violence involving security forces and civilians on either side.
While Assam said the contingent of offi als and police deployed to “defend” the “constitutional boundary” were attacked within its territory, Mizoram home minister Lalchamliana said Mizoram police had to resort to firing to “counter an assault” by their counterparts.
“I am deeply pained to inform that six brave jawans of Assam Police have sacrificed their lives while defending the constitutional boundary of our state at the Assam-Mizoram border. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families,” Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted.
阿萨姆邦首席部长Himanta Biswa Sarma在推特上写道：“凌晨1点，阿萨姆邦警方6名勇敢的警员牺牲了自己的生命，在阿萨姆邦米佐拉姆边界保卫我邦的宪法边界。我深感痛心，向遇难者家属表示衷心的慰问。”
Union home minister Amit Shah intervened immediately to get Assam to withdraw its police deployment from the area so that the “neutral” CRPF could take back control of the inter-state border. “The home minister has spoken to the chief ministers of both states and asked them to maintain status quo,” a senior bureaucrat said.
Sarma took to Twitter again late Monday to say "clear evidences are now begng to emerge that unfortunately show Mizoram Police used Light Machine Guns (LMG) ag inst personnel of @assampolice". He said the attack "speaks volumes about the intention and gravity of the situation".
Sources in the central forces corroborated the CM's statement that the Mizoram police used LMGs.
BJP is dangerous for our country it won't keep united to us.
At first I thought it's Infia China border. But no, our own citizens are fighting for borders. Both CMs should work to get status quo.
Border dispute between two Indian states...utter shame on the po itical class and the people of both the states...
