On July 26, the border dispute between Assam and Mizoram escalated and a fierce gun battle between the forces of the two states ultimately resulted in the death of one civilian and six Assam police personnel. Furthermore, minimum 50 people were also injured in the incident.

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday stated he has directed state police to withdraw FIR against Rajya Sabha MP K Vanlalvena as a “goodwill gesture” after a border clash with Mizoram on July 26 in which six police personnel died.

He then went on to add that cases against the other police officers will also be pursued.

“I have noted statements in media by Honble Mizoram CM Zoramthanga wherein he has expressed his desire to settle the border dispute amicably. Assam always wants to keep the spirit of North East alive. We are also committed to ensuring peace along our borders,” said Himanta Biswa Sarma in a tweet.

“To take this goodwill gesture ahead, I have directed Assam Police to withdraw FIR against K Vanlalvena, Hon’ble MP, Rajya Sabha from Mizoram. However, cases against other accused police officers will be pursued,” he added.

The MP was also booked by Assam Police in connection with violence at the border.

On August 1, Sarma had said that the main focus is on keeping the spirit of the North-East alive.

“What happened along Assam-Mizoram border is unacceptable to people of both states. Mizoram Chief Minister had promised to call me to post his quarantine. Border disputes can only be resolved through discussion,” tweeted Assam Chief Minister on Sunday which was then retweeted by his Mizoram counterpart.
