The Assam-Mizoram border tensions do not seem to have quenched as a theft case has been lodged on Sunday by Mizoram police against Assam police. 

The Issue and Assam Police’s goodwill

The issue arises from when Assam Police allegedly confiscated construction supplies and equipment which were allegedly meant for the construction of a bridge near the border area in Hailakandi district.

However, the state police here returned the seized materials on Monday as a goodwill gesture and to maintain peace in the area. The case was withdrawn thereafter.
