The number of Myanmarese nationals taking refuge in Mizoram has crossed 1000 since last month’s military coup, and at least 100 such people were sent back to their country but they have again sneaked into the state, officials said , reported PTI.

A senior Mizoram home department official said that the government did not receive any further communication from the Centre on the Myanmarese refugee issue after the March 10 directive to stop illegal migration of people from that country.

“As per the home department’s record, 1,042 Myanmarese nationals have entered the state till Monday. While most of them are staying in border villages and are being provided with relief and shelter by local NGOs, some are living with their relatives,” the official told PTI.
