A Tezpur message says: Further particulars of the recent Duffla Raid have reached here [Calcutta]. Then they left the place and some days after 300 hill Dufflas came down to take away the girl. A meeting was held in the evening and after a whole night’s discussion when they found the plain Dufflas did not yield, they began to attack them. It is reported that the hill Dufflas killed 5 men and a number of buffaloes, cows, pigs, etc., which they found on their way back. The plain Dufflas have approached Captain Nevill, the Political Officer, demanding the release of their men.
