Aizawl: The second phase of Bru repatriation, scheduled to begin from Tuesday, may run into trouble due to a road blockade by anti-repatriation elements in relief camps.

Around 100 families have already been identified but the officials could not undertake identification work in three relief camps due to the blockade, Elvis Chorkhy, general secretary of the pro-repatriation Bru Coordination Committee (BCC), said today from Tripura.

Preparations to repatriate families identified by Mizoram government officials began on Saturday.

Mizoram and Tripura government officials would discuss the proposed repatriation today where the issue of providing adequate security to those who want to return to Mizoram would be discussed.

Earlier, 53 families had returned to Mizoram during the first phase of repatriation on November 3 and 4.
