text: 62. Nothing of note occurred amongst the Eastern Angamis of the political control area. The representatives of the naked Naga village of Lapvomi, east of the Lunice, and situated outside our political control area, complained that some of our Kukis had erected a village on their land and that one of these Kukis shot a Lapvomi man in the leg. These Kukis originally came from Henima. They first settled at Aradhura close to Kohima and then moved on to the Manipuri Naga village of Jessami, and now appear to have migrated into independent territory, no doubt to evade the payment of revenue.
