Villages along Tripura – Mizoram border tensed after clash of Brus with locals

Agartala, Jul 27 (UNI) Tension mounted up in Kanchanpur of North Tripura following a clash that erupted between Mizoram displaced Brus (Reang) and local tribes near Casco Bru camp at Mizoram border yesterday leaving at least 32 people injured and burnt down several houses, which forced over a hundred families to flee from their houses and take shelter in safe locations in a local market.
To manage the situation police opened fire on the air and resorted to charge batons. Additional forces have been deployed across Damcherra and Kanchanpur areas while senior police officials have sat for discussion with the leaders of both the groups to cease the tension, police said.
According to the report, the local tribes have been given land deeds under Forest Right Acts in the forestland of Casco, which has been under the occupation of displaced Brus. The Brus have not been allowing local tribals to get possession of the plot for a long time and the administration held several phases of meeting with both the groups but yielded no result.
