text: (e) In November 1903 two men of the Ao village of Salunamang were murdered near Noksen, a trans-Dikhu village, to which they had gone to trade, by a party from the Pelasi khel of Mozungjami. About the same time some men from the Changpu khel of Mozungjami drove off three mithans from Longmisa land. These events led to the punitive expedition against Mozungjami in January 1905.
