The second victim 23-year-old Ramwang Wangsa, who received injuries on the hand, said that the forces mistook them for NSCN cadres. He lamented that they should have been asked to surrender first, if the forces had any doubt about their identity.

Meanwhile, relatives of the victims said that they were in the village when they heard the gunshots. When they reached the spot, their suspicions had come true.
