The actual thieves are believed to have been the Nagas from beyond the Patkoi. This year one trans-Patkoi Naga was arrested and was found to be in possession of iron-cutting instruments. The conduct of the Sarkari Nagas in the Lakhimpur Frontier Tract and of the Barduaria, Namsangiya, and Barmithunia Nagas continued to be satisfactory.
