Indo-Myanmar Border

GUWAHATI: Manipur has started construction of 34 police stations along the India-Myanmar border to check and curb illegal immigration and drug smuggling.

This was disclosed by Chief Minister N Biren Singh while flagging off GPS-enabled highway patrol vehicles in Imphal to prevent intimidation and extortion of truck and bus drivers by miscreants on national highways in the state. Get help.
“Construction of 34 police stations along the Myanmar border from Behiang to Jessami has started. This, among other measures, will help the state curb and prevent illegal immigration and drug smuggling along the border,” Singh said. said

Five districts of Manipur – Chandel, Tengnoupal, Kamjong, Ukhrul and Churachandpur – share borders with Myanmar.
Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram share borders with Myanmar.

Of the 398 km plus border with Myanmar, only 5.3 km is fenced. Since the February 2021 uprising, there has been widespread concern in Manipur over the infiltration of illegal immigrants from Myanmar.

The state assembly passed a unanimous resolution in August to “introduce and enforce a national register of citizens” that would help track down and eliminate foreigners living in the state illegally.
The free movement system, which allows people to enter up to 16 km from either side of the Indo-Myanmar border without documents, adds to the concern over the influx. Assam Rifles personnel are guarding the border with Myanmar in Manipur.

The Manipur government had in 2021 directed five districts bordering Myanmar not to set up camps for Myanmar nationals who cross over to India and remove them “politely”. After widespread criticism, the order was withdrawn.
