He said that the incident took place at the Inner Line Reserve Forest area in Cachar district, around 1.7 kilometres southwards of Lailapur Police Point along the NH-306.
“Assam Police has prepared a picture gallery which is being further updated of Mizoram Police personnel and civilian miscreants who fired at Assam Police on July 26th. They would be brought to law,” he added.
“Assam Police team including officers of CID is leaving for Delhi to take lawful action relating to the conspiracy behind the incident in light of media interview of Rajya Sabha MP Sri K Vanlalvena indicative of his active role in the conspiracy,” he wrote on the microblogging site.
