GUWAHATI: Top brass of the Assam Police department today informed that "lawful action" against Mizoram MP K Vanlalvena will be taken insight of a recent media interview he gave to a national news agency regarding the ongoing Assam-Mizoram border issue.
The Special DGP, Assam, GP Singh tweeted that a team of Assam Police personnel which also comprises of CBI officials will be heading to New Delhi to take lawful action against MP Vanlalvena for his derogatory remarks regarding the recent Assam Mizo border problem on National Highway 306.
The Special DGP has been on a verbal bout on Twitter against his Mizoram counterpart on July 26. ADGP Singh in one of the tweets revealed that "team including officers of CID are leaving for Delhi to take lawful action relating to the conspiracy behind the incident in light of media interview of Rajya Sabha MP Sri K Vanlalvena indicative of his active role in the conspiracy."
Mizoram MP Vanlalvena, in a recent interview with News Agency ANI, alleged that the Assam Police with its more than 200 personnel had hard-pressed their Mizoram counterparts back from their post. He further told the media that it was Assam Police that gave the firing orders first and that the Mizoram Police officials were simply retaliating against the oppression.
Meanwhile, MP Vanlalvena's interview has been doing the rounds on social media platforms for a while now, since the Assam-Mizoram border row recently flared up in Lailapur.
The Rajya Sabha MP Vanlalvena told the National media that, "They are lucky we don't kill them all. If they come again, we shall kill them all."
An infuriated ADGP GP Singh tweeted back informing that the Assam Police has announced a reward of Rs. 5 lakh for any information pertaining to the arrest of the perpetrators involved in what he called "barbaric killing" of the Assam Police personnel on July 26 in Cachar.
Chief Ministers of both the states, including Mizoram CM Zoramthanga and Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, have been seen accusing each other of provoking violence.
It may be mentioned that the recent inter-state border clash with Mizoram claimed seven lives while 50 others were injured, including Cachar SP – Nimbalkar Vaibhav Chandrakant.
Nimbalkar has been airlifted to Mumbai on Tuesday for advanced medical treatment and care, while three others were shifted to Gauhati Medical College and Hospital. The incident led to a band called by the Barak Democratic Front (BDF) which also received unanimous support from several political outfits. The bandh has disrupted normalcy as all business organizations were shut down and very few vehicles were seen plying along the Assam-Mizoram border.
