Official sources said in Silchar that nine goods trucks, stranded at Lailapur in southern Assam’s Cachar district, proceed to Mizoram on National Highway 306 after the locals were assured of justice for six Assam policemen and a civilian killed in firing allegedly by Mizoram police personnel and armed civilians on July 26.
Taking to Twitter guardian minister of Barak Valley Assam Ashok Singhal stated that the ministers, accompanied by Cachar police Deputy Commissioner, had been stationed all through Saturday evening to appease protesting locals and truck drivers to ensure transportation.
He also said “People residing near the Lailapur border and Truck Driver association were gathered here when we reached at 5:30 PM on Saturday. We appeal to everyone not to spread unauthentic news and rumours to ensure peace at the border. I thank Mizoram Home Minister Lalchamliana for assuring free & fair investigation into the incident”.
Mr. Singhal had met the locals along with Local MLA and Environment and Forest Minister of AssamParimal Suklabaidya, Cachar’s Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli and uperintendent of Police Ramandeep Kaur.
