Amidst the nationwide lockdown and restrictions on interstate movement of people, Assam has opened its interstate borders to allow entry of people stranded in the six neighbouring states- Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Manipur.

Hundred of migrant workers and people stuck in Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland breathed a sigh of relief as they entered Assam through the New Field checkpost at Lahorijan over NH 39 and Dillai Gate over NH 36 in Karbi Anglong. However, the Nagaland border will continue to remain sealed and the lockdown norms shall remain in force. The Assam police have arranged for health check-ups of returnees and have ensured that all returnees are thoroughly screened before entry into the state. “A total of 267 people have entered into Assam through Karbi Anglong today.” Informed Bokajan SDPO John Das.
