Following the Mukroh shooting incident, authorities from Assam warned tourists and other visitors from the state to stay clear of Meghalaya.
The border between the two states remains open but, at least when Highland Post was present, vehicles from Assam were not allowed past Jorabat, ostensibly for their own safety.
When contacted, Ri-Bhoi Superintendent of Police Giri Prasad said that the force in the district that borders Assam is on high alert to prevent any law and order problems that might arise from the Mukroh incident.
He further informed that, so far, no untoward incidents were reported from the district in connection with the firing incident in West Jaintia Hills.
Assam Police Public Relations Officer, Rajib Saikia, said that vehicular movement has been restricted along the Assam-Meghalaya border but that there is no outright ban on movement.
