Guwahati, Oct 29 : Cachar district administration in Assam today held a meeting with panic-stricken truck drivers at Lailapur near the inter-state border, urging them to resume movement of goods vehicles to Mizoram even as tension prevails along the Assam-Mizoram border.

The residents had staged the blockade yesterday in protest against the violence triggered by miscreants along the inter-state border area.
 
The truckers gripped by panic, have been reluctant to enter Mizoram in the wake of a blast in a school located in the Khulicherra area close to the inter-state border yesterday night.
 
Residents of Lailapur have so far refused to withdraw the blockade and have reportedly made it clear that they would not do so until a permanent solution to the border problem was arrived at. 
 
Lailapur, under Dholai Assembly constituency, has been on the boil after several shops and houses were set on fire by miscreants earlier this month. A number of people were injured as well.
 
Additional DGP (law and order), Assam, GP Singh paid a visit to the inter-state border here yesterday reviewed the law and order situation in the wake of the blast in Bengali-medium school at Khulicherra. 
 
Singh said the explosion was possibly the handiwork of miscreants who were out to terrorise the local people. He instructed the Cachar superintendent to file a petition in the court under relevant sections of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). 
 
Singh also discussed the matter with Kolasib superintendent of police, Vanlafaka Ralte and other senior police officials of the district before reaching Lailapur from Mizoram’s Vairengte area.
