Sunday, 22 Nov, 7.35 am

Mizoram security personnel continue to occupy Assam's territory at five locations in Cachar and Karimganj districts, said a top police official.

Assam police DIG (Southern Range) Dilip Kumar Dey said the Mizoram personnel continue to station inside Assam's territory at five locations in the two districts.

"Sometimes they thin out, but later they again build up," The Assam Tribune quoted Dey as saying.

The neighboring state had recently decided to pull out its forces from Assam's territory following the intervention of Satyendra Garg, joint secretary (Northeast) in the home affairs ministry.
