Agartala, Oct 22 (UNI) Taking a serious note over alleged encroachment of north Tripura's Chakmapara by Mizoram Armed Police (MAP), Tripura DGP Pranay Sahay today asked the occupiers to leave as early as possible.
The SDPO (Kanchanpur) after conducting an inquiry found that the MAP had occupied Tripura's territory at Chakmapara under Vangmun police station, Sahay said.
"What they have done is totally illegal" Sahay said.
He said the Superintendent of Police (north Tripura) has already requested his Mizoram counterpart to withdraw policemen at the earliest.
Alarmed by the encroachment, the state government has decided to erect a drop gate at Chakmapara to ensure dominance of state police.
This will also ensure to prevent rampant timber smuggling from Tripura to Mizoram through the inter-state porous border, sources in the forest department said.
