text: Besides the above cases, in which protected villages were themselves the offenders, Mr. McCabe found it necessary to punish three villages, or sets of villages, across the Dikhu, in independent territory, for murders committed within the area of political control. These cases were:-
1. The murder in November 1887 of a Loraian man by a party from the Nangta (or naked) village of Kongan.
2. Murders of several men of Ungurr and Akoia by the trans-Dikhu Nangta villages of Yajim and Chihu.
3. Constant and repeated murders, said to have numbered thirty within one year, of persons of Susu by Noksen and Litam, villages of the Mazung tribe.
