Between 1871-72, the unorderly behaviour of Khalkom, a Mizo chieftain, forced the Brits to set up an army post, which later became the town of Aizawl.... In 1890, Assam police sergeant and his 400 men came to Aizawl to assist Colonel Skinner's forces during a UK army mission against the Mizo tribal people.
At Dally's suggestion, Aizawl was chosen as the site for a fort Colonel Skinner had commissioned to build. In 1892-95 Aizawl became open from Silchar on a beautiful meteorological street under the surveillance of Major Loch.
