According to chief minister N Biren Singh, based on reliable information regarding the presence of Myanmar nationals in the Ngathal Village area in Churachandpur district, a team from the Churachandpur police station conducted a search.

“During the search, five Myanmar nationals, including one woman, were found staying illegally in the state. They could not produce any documents of identity and citizenship, therefore were arrested after observing due formalities,” CM Biren said.
