|Security beefed up in Mizoram after NRC publication in Assam|
AIZAWL, Aug 31 - Security has been beefed up in Mizoram and all the police stations and all border outposts along the 123-km Mizoram-Assam border were alerted on Saturday in view of the publication of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in neighbouring Assam, said Mizoram Inspector General of Police (Headquarters) John Neihlaia.
An adequate number of police personnel has been deployed along the border with Assam to prevent any untoward incident in the aftermath of the publication of the NRC final list, and also to prevent possible influx of those left out of it, into Mizoram, Neihlaia said.
“The border areas were peaceful with no report of any incidents till this evening. Arrangements are also in place to rush additional forces to face any eventuality arising out of publication of the final NRC in Assam,” he added. – PTI
