Twin blasts damage school along Assam-Mizoram border in Hailakandi

HAILAKANDI: Miscreants triggered two blasts at the premises of Muliwala Lower Primary School on the Assam side of the inter-state border with Mizoram here around 1.30 am on Wednesday.

The damaged school is located near Assam-Mizoram border about 12 km from Ramnathpur Police Station.

Deputy commissioner Megh Nidhi Dahal and superintendent of police Pabindra Kumar Nath visited the blast site after additional SP (Hq) Kulendra Nath Deka rushed to the spot to start investigation.

The twin blasts have caused severe damage to the school building as well as drinking water reservoir and boy’s toilet which were under construction.

Though the situation is tense, it is under control. Security has been beefed up following the incident.

The Assam-Mizoram border witnessed largescale disturbance late last year after Mizo villagers alleged Assam authorities encroached Mizoram land.

Mizoram faced a major crisis for essential commodities following surface transport blockade from the Assam side.
