On account of unrest among the Kabui Nagas it was found necessary to reopen the Tamenglong subdivision from 1st October 1932, and one of the Assistants to the President was placed in charge. In March 1933, the Government of India sanctioned the reopening of this subdivision, and also that of a second subdivision at Ukhrul, leaving the rest of the hills to be administered by the President of the Darbar with the assistance of a Manipuri officer, whose appointment was to be made by the Darbar with the approval of the Government of Assam. The conduct of the hill tribes was good except for the continuance of the unrest created among the Kabui and Kacha Nagas of North-West Manipur by Gaidiliu. She was captured on October 17th 1932, and the movement initiated by her was effectively checked. Gaidiliu was tried for murder and sentenced to transportation for life.
