three Myanmar police constables cross over to India in search of refuge


March 4

Three Myanmar police constables have crossed over to India’s northeastern state of Mizoram and are seeking shelter in the country, an Indian police official said on Thursday.

“What they said is they got instructions from the military rule, which they cannot obey so they have run away,” said Stephen Lalrinawma, the superintendent of police of Mizoram’s Serchhip district, where the three men crossed over on Wednesday afternoon.
