text: The conduct of the tribes in the control area was generally good. Tuensang made a raid on Tobu, a village outside the control area, and Pensure, another village outside, took heads off Phelungre which is outside.
text: The administered villages of Wangla and Longlam near Wakching made a raid on independent territory and in conjunction with the independent Konyak village of Yanha set an ambush for the Nagas of Niyanyu, also independent. The Wangla and Longlam people were suitably dealt with. The two ringleaders are in jail and 28 unlicensed guns were extracted from the two villages.
