Contingents of the India Reserve Battalion (IRB) in Mizoram are being relocated to two districts in Assam to help state authorities maintain law and order, a senior police officer said today.

The 3rd battalion of IRB would be shortly leaving for Udalguri and Darrang districts as directed by the Union Home ministry, the official said.

While the first batch left the headquarters at Mamit on Mizoram-Tripura border last Saturday, the second and final batch led by the Battalion's commandant John Neihlaia would be leaving Mizoram after the vehicles return.

The deployment is expected to be completed within this month, the official said.

IRB is a special force based in Mizoram, Nagaland and Meghalaya.
