Khan also told them that the border row issue had been taken up by Government of Assam not only with the Government of Mizoram but also the Central Government.

Aizawl: Mizoram chief minister Lal Thanhawla on Monday wrote to union home minister Rajnath Singh seeking his intervention in the Mizoram-Assam border dispute so that peace is restored at the earliest, an official said. When Assam police tried to stop the student activists, a clash ensued. Chief secretaries of the two states had held talks on the border dispute in 1995-96 and it was then decided that the talks should be taken up at the chief ministers' level, he said.

"We also condemn the high handedness of Assam's Hailakandi district administration for utilising highly disproportionate strength of police force to commit such frightful and despicable acts on a small group of student volunteers of Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP) who were only trying to build a resting shed in a land within the boundary of Mizoram", Michael Lamjathang Haokip, Secretary General TSA, General Headquarters in a statement said. The MZP alleged lathicharge and firing by the police that injured 49 persons, including students and journalists.

The state governments were asked to take appropriate steps to ensure law and order, prevent the situation from escalating and bring the situation under control. The administration of Assam's Hailakandi district, bordering Mizoram, had on March 7 clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPc with immediate effect in certain areas apprehending encroachment attempts from the other side.

The Mizoram Journalist Association staged a peaceful statewide sit-in in protest against Assam police's brutality last week.

In Assam, former minister Siddique Ahmed urged chief secretary T.Y. Das to defuse the boundary tension that started at Kachurthal in Hailakandi district, adjoining Kolasib district of Mizoram. Students' organisations, including the Cachar district unit of Congress-affiliated National Students' Union of India (NSUI), also demanded safeguarding of the interest of non-Mizos in Mizoram.

Aizawl/Kolasib (zoramobserver.com): The call for action against Assam Police personnel who with brute force attacked and injured at least 8 journalists from Mizoram is growing louder.
