    Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his Mizoram counterpart Zoramthanga are scheduled to meet in New Delhi on Thursday to resolve differences over the clashes at the interstate boundary leading to six deaths three months ago.

    According to reports, both the chief ministers will hold the meeting at a place of their choosing.

    Assam and Mizoram share a boundary of about 165 kilometers and there are numerous stretches of dispute that have repeatedly led to clashes between police and civilians. 

    In July, a major incident took place along the Kolasib-Vairengte border during which six Assam policemen were killed and several others injured. 

    In an effort to resolve the tension between both the states, the Centre sent central forces to mediate talks but the conflict continued for days. 

    The official engagement between the two states happened in August through high-ranking officials in Aizawl.

    Recently, the Assam government has also accused Mizoram of constructing a road inside a reserve forest in its territory.

    Confirming about the construction, the Superintendent of Police in Hailakandi Gaurav Upadhyay said that a road was being built near the remote Haticherra village in the reserve forest.

    "We first got the information from the Forest Department about the road being built on our side. Subsequently, we contacted the Mizoram counterparts, who then stopped the construction. There was no activity in the last two days,” he said.

    "However, we got information that three JCBs were seen today at the location. So, Hailakandi DC and I will visit the spot on Wednesday with officials concerned and do a spot verification. Only then we will be able to tell the details," Upadhyay added.
