text: (a) In February 1903 two men of Mongsemdi returning from the plains were attacked, severely wounded, and robbed by men of Kongan. As this happened on the west bank of the Dikhu, the Subdivisional Officer was authorised to visit Kangan (sic) with an escort. He did so, and fined Kangan, Jaktung, and Tablung Rs. 100/- each. These three villages lie along the Sibsagar frontier. They are to a great extent amenable to orders from the Sibsagar authorities, and are visited freely by the Assamese Katakis of that district.
