AIZAWL , OCT 24, 2011 (PTI): With the improvement in law and order situation in Dima Hasao district of neighbouring Assam, around 150 Hmar refugees belonging to 20 families who had taken shelter in Mizoram have returned, a senior police official today said.

The official told PTI that most of those who returned to Dima Hasao (erstwhile North Cachar Hills) were mainly from Bairabi, the only rail link in the state, where majority of the refugees took shelter in the homes of their relatives.

"If the situation continues to improve, we hope that all the refugees who entered Mizoram since October 16 last would return to Assam," he said.

Around 200 refugees have come and taken shelter in Mizoram-Assam border Kolasib district following ethnic clashes between majority Dimasas and non-Dimasas in Dima Hasao district.
