Guwahati: The army’s Assam Rifles met with village chiefs and leaders of a civil society group in settlements in Mizoram near the border with Myanmar and discussed the situation in the neighbouring country, where the military junta is fighting insurgents of the People’s Defence Force (PDF).

Intelligence sources said the fresh fighting has triggered another rush of Chin-Kuki refugees from Myanmar to India via Mizoram, where the assembly election was held on November 7. Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has welcomed over 32,000 refugees from Myanmar in recent years citing familial and kinship ties.
