Aizawl, June 19: Fresh influx has taken place in Mizoram from the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) of Southeast Bangladesh in last two days.

According to officials, around 30 more refugees comprising nine families took shelter in Mizoram.

After the latest influx, the total number of Bangladeshi refugees taking shelter in Mizoram has risen to 1,901, comprising 505 women and 810 children. “Majority of the Bangladeshi refugees are sheltered in 12 camps, while some have been living with their relatives and friends,” said an official.

After the ethnic trouble started in CHT, the tribals started taking shelter in Mizoram from November 2022.

The majority of these refugees belong to the Kuki-Chin community, primarily the Bawm and Pang tribes, who fled due to conflict between the Bangladesh army and the Kuki-Chin National Army (KNA), fighting for greater autonomy for tribals in the CHT.

In addition to Bangladeshis, around 34,000 refugees including 10,905 women and 12,844 children from Myanmar are now sheltered in all 11 districts of the border state.

Mizoram is also providing shelter to around 9,000 Kuki-Zomi-Hmar tribals who were displaced after the ethnic strife began in the neighbouring Manipur in May, last year.
