The Superintendent of Police Kamrup Rural, K.R Roy, represented the Assam side.

“The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the prevailing tension which occurs in disputed areas along the border,” Ri Bhoi district police chief Nazarius Lamare said.

“Frequent antisocial elements disrupt peace and tranquillity among the residents of both the states which can lead to communal clashes. Therefore, to curb all this menace, a joint border meeting was organised to discuss coordination among the police departments of the two states,” he added.
