In a delayed report, a team of Assam Police and Forest department officials demolished an illegal structure/temporary camp allegedly built to station Nagaland police personnel at Dillai Reserve Forest area on December 26.

Karbi Anglong police alleged that Nagaland government constructed temporary camp well inside the Assam land on December 24, 2019, for which the police and forest officials demolished the illegal structures. This was also confirmed by SP Karbi Anglong Gaurav Upadhyay.

The district administration also claimed that the area where the demolishment took place was well within Karbi Anglong autonomous district forested area and under Lahorijan police patrol post.

The action of Assam government has led to escalation of tensions in the area. 

It may be recalled that the on December 8 last, Assam police and forest officials reportedly served final eviction notice, directing “encroachers” to vacate the areas by December 19.

The order dated December 6, 2019 issued by divisional forest officer (DFO), Karbi Anglong West (T) division, claimed that the forest land from FD pillar No. 3 to 15 near Rilan village-Dimapur and Tengnanglangso near Indisen village Dimapur and around FD pillar No. 16-19 near Sensolikum village were encroached.

In another “ejection notice” issued on December 6, 2019, the DFO stated that the alleged encroachers who have constructed semi-permanent and permanent structures, cultivation etc., were causing threat to the existence of bio-diversity including endangered flora and fauna of the area.

Citing approval of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council and mandatory under Sec.72 (C) of Assam Forest Regulation 1891, the DFO has asked all those who have encroached the areas to vacate by December 19 and to treat the notice as final.
