Bru tribal women protesting against repatriation s at a refugee camp in north Tripura yesterday. The repatriation of the Mizoram Bru refugees was scheduled to be carried out yesterday from six Bru refugee camps who are lodging in transit camps in neighbouring Tripura, since they fled Mizoram in 1997 following ethnic violence. However, the inmates have refused to return back without cash rehabilitation of `150,000 (about $2,500) per family and a written agreement from Mizoram government ensuring their social and political safety and security.
