In the wake of reports that Bru militants may unleash violence ahead of the proposed repatriation of refugees from six relief camps in Tripura from May 17, the district administration of Mamit has stepped up security, official sources said today.

The administration has issued alerts to the employees of government and private companies and also village elders in the border and remote areas, they said.

It also prohibited people from venturing out near the border, especially with Bangladesh border areas including Rajiv Nagar and Amchurinukh villages between 7 PM and 4 AM.

The prohibitory order would be in force for two months, they said.
