Aizawl, March 5 : At least 23 Myanmar police personnel and some civilians have crossed over into India and are seeking refuge in Mizoram, officials and villagers along the borders said on Friday.
Mizoram’s lone Lok Sabha member C. Lalrosanga said that 15 Myanmar police personnel came to Champhai district while eight policemen took shelter in Serchhip district.
The police personnel and some civilians from the military coup-hit Myanmar entered into the two Mizoram districts since Wednesday.
“The Mizoram government has issued a standard operating procedure (SOP) with regard to the people entering Mizoram from Myanmar in view of the military coup. Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has already asked the people living along the borders to follow the SOP issued by the state government,” Lalrosanga told IANS over phone.
Serchhip district Deputy Commissioner Kumar Abhishek and his Champhai district counterpart Maria C.T. Zuali told the media separately that the district authorities have been providing food and shelter to the people who came from across the border.
Both DCs said that the entire matter is under investigation, and has been communicated to the higher authority and they are awaiting further instructions.
