Four people have died so far in Bru relief camps in North Tripura district, which a forum for displaced Brus claims to be a result of “starvation”.
Displaced Brus from Mizoram have claimed that four members of the community, including a four-month-old infant, had died of starvation at the refugee camps in Tripura after the Centre stopped providing free rations to them.
Three persons are admitted to a hospital and the Bru refugees continued to stage road blockade in an area in Tripura bordering Mizoram since Thursday, demanding resumption of free ration and cash-dole to them.
Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Forum (MBDPF) alleged that the people died of “starvation” after the Centre “stopped providing free ration and cash-dole” to the inmates of the relief camps from last month following commencement of the ninth and final repatriation process from October 3. The exercise is scheduled to be completed by November 30.
