'The police have beefed up security in Aizawl following intelligence reports the HPC-D planned to trigger blasts in several places in Aizawl,' a police official said today.
The intelligence inputs of possible HPC-D attacks came in the wake of a flag march organised by Mizoram police in the northeastern part of Mizoram bordering Manipur, demanded by the HPC-D for an autonomy of the Hmars.
Since recently, the HPC-D has renewed activities in the area by serving a diktat to all branches of Young Mizo Association under the HPC-D 'demand area' and also serving extortion notes to several village councils.
The stand-off with YMA, the state's largest non-governmental organisation, was triggered by the central YMA president's alleged remarks that the YMA was strongly against the demand for a community-based autonomy to be carved out of Mizoram.
Fearing for their lives, majority of the YMA branches have tendered their resignation.
State home minister R Lalzirliana stated that the flag march aimed at boosting the people's morale and instilling a sense of security among the people.
'We will reinforce the police outposts in the border area and set up more outposts where there are no outposts.
The people of this area should have confidence in the Mizoram government,' he said.
