A resident who gave his name as Nangak said the attackers came in large number and shot sporadically as they raided the village.

It was learnt that additional security had been deployed to the area to restore normalcy.

Police spokesperson in the state, DSP Felicia Anslem confirmed the attack, but said she was yet to get the details.
