Bru repatriation to Mizoram to resume tomorrow

New Delhi , Mon, 11 Apr 2011 ANI

New Delhi, Apr.11 (ANI): The Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) in a press release today stated that a total of 142 Bru families consisting of 747 persons,


including 592 adults and 155 minors, will be repatriated to Mizoram from Naisingpara relief camp in Kanchanpuri sub division of Tripura tomorrow.


These returnee families will be resettled in five villages in Mamit district of Mizoram, respectively 49 families at Damdial, 33 families at Khanthuam, 16 families at Bawngva, 22 families at Damparengpui and 22 families at Tuipuibari.


They were drawn from the families who were affected by recent fire at the Naisingpara camp on 19 March 2011. Over 17,000 Brus were displaced in the fire while 17 persons were charred to death.


The repatriation of Brus who sought shelter in Tripura in 1997 was suspended in November 2010 following protest by the Mizoram Bru Displaced Peoples Forum.


The director of the ACHR, Suhas Chakma, facilitated a dialogue between the pro and anti-repatriation factions of the displaced Brus in December 2010, who then signed the Kanchapur Agreement. The Home Ministry further expanded the relief package based on the Kanchanpur Agreement. The repatriation is


taking place based on the written guarantees provided by the ninistry.


There are about 30,000 remaining Bru IDPs in the camps. (ANI)
