Meet reviews NC Hills security

Guwahati, May 278 : A high-level meeting on the security situation in North Cachar Hills today decided to requisition the army’s help in the running of trains in the district.
Frequent attacks by rebels have disrupted train services in the district since May last year.
The decision was part of a security blueprint prepared at the meeting attended by senior central and state government officials.
It will be submitted to the Centre for its approval.
The blueprint also envisages the redeployment of security personnel, including those from the army and better co-ordination among the various security agencies to foil the “evil designs” of the militants and other elements.
A central team led by special secretary (internal security), Union ministry of home affairs, Raman Srivastava and joint secretary (Northeast), Navin Verma, visited Haflong this morning for an on-the-spot review of the situation with the district administration and security agencies there.
Train services in the district have been suspended following militant attacks causing disruption in the supply of essentials to Barak Valley, Mizoram and Tripura.
Assam chief secretary P.C. Sharma and senior railway officials were also part of the review meeting held at the Assam Rifles camp in Haflong.
Sharma told The Telegraph that the state government was doing everything possible to restore normality and ensure the resumption of train services in the district.
The central team returned to the state capital at around 3pm and held another round of meetings at the Border Security Force DIG sector headquarters at Patgaon here before departing for Delhi.
Besides the attack on trains, the district has also seen a spurt in ethnic clashes.
The Zeliangrong Hoho, an umbrella organisation of Zeme, Lingmai and Rongmai Nagas of Nagaland, today blamed the DHD (Jewel) group for the ongoing ethnic clashes in the district.
