As per reports, teams of police and forest officials from Katlicherra circle in Hailakandi rushed to the shed area but reportedly failed to reach the spot due to poor road conditions.

It is reported that at least 200-250 police battalions of Mizoram police are engaged in the construction of a shed for the camp around three kilometres inside the Assam land.
