Scope and Content

The villagers had all fled at the approach of the column, removing their property and hiding it in the jungle. The bamboo and thatch dwellings could easily be rebuilt, but this punishment meted out to Pangsha was received with much rejoicing by the surrounding villages who had long been subjected to Pangsha's reign of terror. On retiring from the village, four Nagas of Mills' party were nearly cut off by a Pangsha ambush, but managed to escape.'
