Both DCs of Karbi Anglong and Dimapur held the Assam-Nagaland State Border Co-ordination meeting at the DC’s conference hall here Monday where issues pertaining to trans border crimes were discussed and a resolve to tackle these through a united effort. DC Karbi Anglong M.C.Sahu maintained that there was no border dispute between the two states as the districts were clearly demarcated by natural boundary except in areas such as Daldali Reserved Forest. DC Dimapur, Maongwati Aier while welcoming the officials of both the states said the two districts witnessed marked improvement with regard to dealing with trans-border issues after the first co-ordination meeting held in Bokajan on March this year. He said trans-border issues like inflow of illegal liquor, drugs and crime rate have been reduced. Aier also said the coordination meeting was a “great sign” of cooperation and friendship and that it was a better way of sharing information to discuss law and order situation between the two sides. Keeping in mind the frequent mishaps in Assam involving Nagaland vehicles, Aier sought assistance from his Assam counterpart during such incidents. He also called for curbing of illegal tax collection at New Field Check Gate. DC Karbi Anglong acknowledged the agendas of his Dimapur counterpart and said the current measures which it adopted after the first co-ordination would continue in future to solve the problem. “Sharing of information on criminals/miscreants must be shared,” he said. SP Karbi Anglong, K.K. Sharma alleged that on March 4, about 300 persons from Nagaland including Nagaland Police with armed forces reached Ao Kashiram Basti under Daldali Reserved Forest and tried to construct a church and some dwelling houses. He said the matter was immediately taken up with SP Dimapur and as per his assurance the “Naga people” and the “armed forces” later withdrew from the site of “encroachment”. He also pointed out that a “nearly deteriorating law and order scenario was averted” after the intervention by DC Karbi Anglong who also took up the case with DC Dimapur. During the meeting, it was decided that following officials from both the districts; Revenue Officer, EAC, LRSO and DFO Dimapur and DFO and BO Karbi Anglong would inspect the disputed area (Daldali Reserved Forest) on May 25, with GPS to verify the spot and submit the findings for amicable solution. Sharma also said that on April 1, 2009 at around 9:05 pm, VDB secretary of Khatkhati, Gagan Naik informed over telephone that a group of unknown miscreants entered Chiramill and opened fire aiming at the chowkidar, Suni Borah and injured him on his legs. In this connection Mamoni Borah, wife of Sunil Borah lodged an FIR on April 2, the investigation for which is on. Sharma also said miscreants from Dimapur allegedly kidnapped one Ritesh Agarwal, the son of Narayan AGarwal, the caretake(mohori) of the firm. He claimed the kidnap was due to business rivalry as some businessman wanted to take over the mill to install a liquor distillery project. The SP claimed that according to mobile tower , the kidnap victim was around Dhansiripar and alleged that one underground outfit may have holding the victim for whom ransom was demanded. On the movement of armed cadres from various groups/organizations from both sides sneaking into another area, SP Dimapur, Liremo Lotha said such issue needed to be solved from the lower levels.
