“During interrogation the girls gave different versions about their journey. Seven of them are the inmates of refugee camps in Kanchanpur (in north Tripura) where tribals from Mizoram live. Another teen aged girl is a class nine student from Mizoram,” he said.

Debbarma said that to know the details the police have called the refugee leaders who said they were unaware of the girls’ journey.

“Their parents said they face acute poverty here. They were sending their daughters to Gujarat in search of jobs in beauty parlours. However, the parents could not give corroborative facts and other details. We are investigating the matter,” the police official added.

About 31,300 Reang tribals, who call themselves ‘Bru’, have been living in seven makeshift camps for the past 19 years in Kanchanpur area adjoining Mizoram.

They had fled ethnic violence in western Mizoram following the killing of a Mizo forest official at the Dampa Tiger Reserve.

Unless the demands of the refugees of food and security are met, they are reluctant to go back to their villages despite several initiatives taken by the Mizoram Government. (IANS)
