Twenty-one Bru refugees families travelled on Wednesday from their camps in Tripura to Mizoram.
Since August 25, a total of 24 families have repatriated to Mizoram from Tripura as part of a tripartite repatriation agreement signed among the two state governments and the Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Forum (MBDPF), officials said.
“Around 90 people from 21 families have travelled today. On September 24, another 12 families are scheduled to travel,” Raval Hamendra Kumar, District Magistrate and Collector of North Tripura, said.
“The process of updating of the names of refugee Brus in the electoral rolls of Mizoram is also going on and a list is expected on September 27,” T Laldingliana, president of the newly-formed Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Coordination Committee (MBDPCC), said.
