text: 62. With the exception of the murder of a trader of Tesephima and a riot which was not, however, of a serious nature between Solhupu's village and Sevekhe's village, nothing of any importance happened.
text: The riot between Solhupu's and Sevekhe's village was over some jhum land. Only stones and sticks were used. The case was still pending at the end of the year. During the year the Deputy Commissioner made two tours through this control area. Outside the political control area there has been a certain amount of head-taking but the Deputy Commissioner did not interfere. The bridal path is now in good order and the suspension bridge over the Keleki river was nearly completed at the close of the year.
