Reang return to Mizoram "after thirteen years of displacement" reflected in this article is incorrect; Reang refugees fled Mizoram a year back because of the gruesome killing of a mizo youth suspectedly by some miscreants in the Reang community. Mizo's are known for their hospitality and compassion towards the Reang community.
