Sources said that after the firing, at least 15-20 families of the village of the border area fled from the area.

Sources also said that the NSCN opened fire with a view to threatening the villagers so that they could carry out their extortion drive in the border areas.

Several organisations of Sonari have slammed the Congress-led Government in Assam for its alleged failure to protect villagers living close to Nagaland border from persecution by the people of the neighbouring State.
