Must read

Aizawl, May 24: Nearly 1,390 more refugees have entered India during the past few days taking shelter in Mizoram after fresh clashes between the army and civil militia groups in Myanmar.

The fresh influx of refugees was triggered by the armed clashes between ‘Tatmadaw’ (Myanmar military), and “pro-democratic” forces led by the Chin National Army (CNA).

According to reports, the refugees, mostly belonging to Myanmar’s Chin state, fled to different villages of Mizoram’s Champhai, Saitual, Siaha and Lunglei districts.

Six Mizoram’s districts Champhai, Siaha, Lawngtlai, Hnahthial, Serchhip and Saitual share a 510-km long unfenced border with Myanmar’s Chin state.

Most refugees stay in rented houses and homes of their relatives or friends while others live in 149 relief camps across seven districts of the state.

According to figures, the total number of refugees who entered Mizoram since the Myanmar military took the administration in a coup in February 2021 has risen to around 36,000.
