The incident came year after a year after a violent border clash leading to the death of 7 people took place between the two neighboring states.

Mizoram shares a 164.6 km long boundary with Assam and the two neighboring states are currently in talks to amicably resolve the long-standing border dispute.

The incident area is contiguous to Hailakandi district in Assam.

Sources said that Assam Side removes illegal shed construction at Zophai after facing opposition from the people of Bairabi and the MZP.
