ITANAGAR, 22 Jun: The Adi Students’ Union (AdiSU) has strongly condemned the 16 June incident in Kathan village in Lohit district, where a group of Chakma settlers crossed the traditional Mishmi boundary in Kathan village and fired guns in the air to frighten the indigenous people.

Stating that it stands firmly with the steps taken by

 the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union and the All Mishmi Students’ Union, the AdiSU appealed to the state government to “initiate a permanent solution regarding the refugee issue, considering the safety of the indigenous tribes of Kathan village in particular and the state as a whole.”
