AIZAWL, Jan 8 � Identification of Bru refugees, lodged in six relief camps in North Tripura district, who wanted to return to Mizoram and were bonafide residents of the State, would be conducted from Monday.
Government officials of Mamit district in Mizoram would visit all relief camps on Monday and repatriation would be resumed after completion of the identification, State Home department officials said here today.
Additional armed police personnel were deployed in Kolalian, Sihthiang, Chuhvel, Saikhawthlir, Tumpanglui, Rengdil and Hriphaw villages where the repatriated refugees would be resettled.
At least 170 Bru families have returned on their own during the past one week and were resettled in Sihthiang village and surrounding ones though anti-repatriation elements obstructed those who wanted to return to Mizoram.
A Sawibung, president of the Mizoram Bru Displaced People�s Forum, said that they might not organise road blocks like before but might continue a democratic agitation. � PTI
