In the past five years, around 20,700 people have been arrested between 2015 and January this year for entering Mizoram without valid inner-line permits (ILP), home minister Lalchamliana told the Assembly on Tuesday.
While replying to a question from Independent MLA Andrew H. Thangliana, the minister said more than 5.53 lakh ILPs were issued during this period. At least 20,765 people have been arrested by police and 19,220 of them pushed back from the state from 2015 till January this year.
He said that the state government is making efforts to upgrade the system. In December last year, the state government had launched online ILP portal to ensure security. It also rolled out ILP Mizoram mobile app for NGOs and general public and ILP Enforcer mobile app for the state police.
