The Assam Police has summoned six Mizoram government officers, including deputy commissioner and superintendent of police of Kolasib district, to appear at the Dholai police station on Monday, officials said.

A source in the Assam Police on Friday said the summonses were issued on July 28, two days after the bloody gun battle between the police forces of Assam and Mizoram at Lailapur in Cachar district, in connection with a case registered at the Dholai police station.

“...A reasonable and credible information has been received that you have committed the alleged cognisable offence,” the individual summons issued by the Cachar Deputy Superintendent of Police Kalyan Kumar Das mentioned.

“This direction is issued in exercise of powers conferred u/s 41A of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973,” it added.

The six officials against whom the summonses were issued include Kolasib Deputy Commissioner H Lalthlangliana, its Superintendent of Police (SP) Vanlalfaka Ralte, Additional SP David JB, Vairangte Sub-Divisional Officer (Civil) C Lalrempuia, 1st Indian Reserve Battalion Additional SP Bruce Kibby and Vairangte Sub-divisional Police Officer Thartea Hrangchal.    

When contacted, Cachar SP Ramandeep Kaur confirmed the development, but did not share details.

Assam Police personnel and a civilian were killed while defending the “constitutional boundary” of the state with Mizoram and more than 50 people injured, as the festering border dispute between the two northeastern states erupted into a bloody conflict on July 26.
