AIZAWL, April 3 - It has been confirmed that no one from Mizoram attended the religious congregation at Nizamuddin in New Delhi, which has emerged as an epicentre for spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Earlier, it was suspected that a Muslim man from Saiphai village in north Mizoram close to the Assam border had attended the event.
Saiphai village council president Lalramnghaka said the man had gone to Delhi from Silchar by train on October 28 last year.
�According to his own account, he returned to Mizoram on January 8. We believe his statement is true since his neighbours saw him there around this time,� he said.
Meanwhile, the Mizoram Police are tracing all the people whose presence at Nizamuddin was detected by a mobile phone tower near the mosque where the congregation took place.
The Mizoram Government has also beefed up security along the inter-State border following the spike in coronavirus cases in neighbouring Assam.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police (Northern Range) Lalbiakthanga Khiangte said following the surge of COVID-19 cases in Assam, they have alerted all the check posts on the inter-State border with Assam, especially at Vairengte and Bairabi, and at Mamit district along the State�s border with Tripura.
