India tightens border security to prevent Rohingya influx
India has tightened security along its border with Myanmar in the northeastern states of the country to prevent Rohingya influx. The decision was taken in a meeting held with senior officials of Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Mizoram police and intelligence agencies at Assam Rifles Headquarters in Mizoram on September 14. According to Major General Upendra Dwivedi, inspector general of Assam Rifles (East), eight additional companies of his brigade were being relocated to the India-Myanmar border, along with the frontiers, for further security. “Security forces are keeping round the clock land and air surveillance in Mizoram border area as it shares a porous border with Myanmar,” Upendra Dwivedi said. Four northeast Indian states - Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland and Mizoram - share a total of 1,643km border with Myanmar. India says it plans to deport 40,000 Rohingyas living illegally in India. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have left Myanmar since August 25 after the army launched 'security operations' targeting Rohingya villages. Nearly 400,000 of them have already entered neighbouring Bangladesh.
