Man shot at by Myanmarese Army personnel

By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, Jan 15 - A 67-year-old man suffered bullet injuries after Myanmarese Army personnel, who reportedly mistook him for an insurgent, shot at him twice on Friday evening in southern Mizoram�s Lawngtlai district, police said.

Monondo and his wife Banati, members of Bru community, were collecting medicinal herbs � locally known as �nchiri� � along the border area when the Myanmarese Army personnel shot at them, Lawngtlai SP Lalsanglura said.

�The shooting stopped after Banati screamed aloud and said they were Indian citizens, not insurgents,� he said, adding that the bullets hit Monondo on both the legs, breaking the bone of his right thigh.

The Myanmar troops then approached the couple and gave medicines, food and torchlight, Lalsanglura said. � PTI
