Mizoram has been dormant for a long time and that's due to the elimination of terrorism in the state. The people there are no longer the hateful groups that were there in the 90s. COIN operations combined with public outreach keeps them Indian - albeit a Xtian version of us. Chinese won't be able to do shit if we play hardball. The reality is that they are already involved heavily in the terror groups in Nagaland and Manipur and cannot make it worse at this point.GoI is wary of insurgency being fuelled by the Chinks and Pakis in Mizoram, if they force out these fellas back to Myanmar. They do have the local sympathies
China is as much hard-pressed as it tries to lash out everywhere. Himalayan borders, South China Sea, Sea of Japan, combined with internal resource crunch, power crisis, floods, a dropping economy and political tensions... CCP isn't going to do much at this time. They know QUAD is softer economic arm but they also know that AUKUS is not a joke. They mean business and they are here to stay.
Keeping these factors in mind, we should play hardball and send the escapee government officers back. Junta supported us when they did combined COIN operations against terror groups at GOI's request. If we keep these people here, we will lose their support.
