APBN ( Assam Police Battalion) and Arunachal Police exchanged fire on the night of 18th August 2010 at Charaipung, Bimalpur area in Sivasagar District of Assam. It is alleged that, Arunachal Police were supported by NSCN ( Khaplang) group.
While, Assam has border dispute with almost all other North Eastern states except Manipur, but their police forces never exchanged fire. The exchange of fire between police forces of two states is quite a news!
It is reported that, to diffuse tension, Assam Minister for Law , Sericulture, Handloom & Textile Pronob Gogoi visited the area today and met the Arunachal Home Minister Taku Dabi in a meeting in Bimalapur TE Guest House and discussed about ways to bring back normalcy and peace in the region. A Peace Committee was formed.
