Altogether 99 people were today pushed back from Mizoram to Assam for violating provisions of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system, Aizawl district SP Lalhuliana Fanai said.
Over 150 non-tribal were arrested in Aizawl on Thursday for residing in the state without valid ILP and these 99 of them were convicted by courts, Fanai told PTI.
The convicted people were taken to the Mizoram-Assam border and pushed back.
At least 120 alleged ILP violators were again arrested last night in Aizawl of which 79 were convicted today, Fanai said, adding that those convicted would be pushed back tomorrow.
Under the provisions of the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, non-tribal people who come from outside some North Eastern states including Mizoram, have to possess ILP to live and work in the tribal areas.
