Aizawl, Aug 31: Officials of the state Home Department is likely to visit Delhi this week to submit details report of Bru repatriation at six transit camps in Tripura to the Supreme Court.
Sources on Monday said that official of state Home Department would visit Supreme Court this week to intimate reports of Bru repatriation process being carried out from June 2 to August 27.
The state government had earlier sent details report to Union Ministry of Home Affairs regarding the state government initiative for Bru repatriation between June 2 and 4 September and non-appearance of Bru families for verification during the repatriation process at six transit camps.
The Supreme Court has meanwhile, decided to sit over Bru repatriation process on 4 September.
Although advocates are expected to stand on behalf of Mizoram government, officials will be sent this week to Supreme Court to submit details report of Bru repatriation including video footage following an appeal from the apex court, Home department sources said.
The Supreme Court had earlier directed Ministry of Home Affairs, Mizoram government and Tripura government to repatriate Bru refugees at six transit camps in Tripura within six months. Subsequently a roadmap drawn up by the state governments and the MHA had also been approved the Apex court.
In line with a roadmap drawn up by the state governments and the MHA (which was submitted to and approved by the SC), officials from Mizoram accompanied by those from Tripura set up verification counters in the six relief camps from June 2 to 27 August.
The repatriation for Bru tribals who fled Mizoram for Tripura following communal riot near Persang village in Mamit district in 1997 could not be materialized after no Bru families had turned up for verification except three families who later intimated their unwillingness to return to Mizoram.
