Aizawl, Jul 14 (UNI) Mizoram's Inner Line Permit(ILP) special delegation today left Aizawl for Kohima and Itanagar.

The 12-member team, headed by Law and Judicial Minister H Rammawi, has a representative each from 12 political and non-political organisations of Mizoram, besides the church leaders' committee, official sources said.

The sources maintained that the team will meet officials and NGOs of Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh and study how the Inner Line Permit (ILP) was enforced in the two states.

This had been prompted by the recent Gauhati High Court's interim order directing Mizoram to stop arresting and deporting Indian nationals on the ground of not possessing the ILP.

The ILP, contemplated by the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, was in force in the two states besides Mizoram, sources said, adding the team might also seek joint efforts with the two states in preventing the ILP from abolition since it was the last wall safeguarding the tribals of these states from assimilation.
