Altogether 153 families are now under the trees with their family member, till the filing of this report no official from the district administration visited the victims.


It would not out of place to mention here that during last fortnight 15 houses were burnt due to Jhum fire at Koladisa, but till date the government relief was not provided to the victims except Dima Halam Daogah and Jadikhe Nasho Hosom. Both JNH and DHD visited Koladisa and provided relief and possible assistance to the villagers.
