By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, May 13 (PTI) - The Centre has decided to beef up security along Mizoram's porous international borders with Bangladesh and Myanmar to check movement of terrorists and smugglers, senior officials said today.

Quoting intelligence reports, State Home department officials said here that North East militants hiding in the two countries frequently use Mizoram, the most peaceful State in the region, as corridors.

Sandwiched between the two countries, Mizoram shares 404 km and 318-km-long borders with Myanmar and Bangladesh, respectively.

During their recent visits to the State, the chiefs of BSF and the Assam Rifles informed Mizoram Governor Lt General MM Lakhera and Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla that more troops would be deployed along the border areas, the officials added.
