Myanmarese refugees return HOME... Thanks to ASSAM RIFLES

The influx of Myanmar refugees occurred at village Lungpuk and Khaikhy in Saiha district, where the villagers from Ralei village in Myanmar traversed to the Indian side.

On May 19, 338 Myanmarese mostly women and children had crossed over to the Indian side of the International Boundary in South Mizoram, seeking refuge and asylum to evade atrocities from Myanmar-based Insurgent group Arakan Army.

Assam Rifles being the first responder for the Indo-Myanmar Border immediately sprung into action and sent its team from forward posts and a senior officer of the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with his team from Lunglei to ensure safe and peaceful return of the refugees to Myanmar with medical and humanitarian assistance to the refugees.
