Aizawl, March 26: The charred bodies of three individuals, including a woman, were discovered by the police of Mizoram in a forested area of Myanmar.
The victims, who belonged to Mizoram’s Siaha district, had gone missing after departing for Myanmar from their Ainak village on March 19th.
Inspector General of Police Lalbiakthanga Khiangte has confirmed the recovery of the bodies and stated that the case is currently being investigated.
According to the police, it is suspected that the victims were taken hostage and murdered by former members of a militant organization in Myanmar.
The killers, who are alleged arms smugglers, held the victims, hostage because they failed to repay money owed to them. The India-Myanmar border has a Free Movement Regime which allows tribes living along the border to travel 16.
This tragic incident highlights the risks and dangers of living in border areas where illegal activities such as arms smuggling and organized crime are prevalent.
It is important for authorities to take swift and effective action to prevent such incidents from happening in the future and ensure the safety of citizens living in such areas.
