LONGLIANG, 27 Apr: Tirap Deputy Commissioner Taro Mize on Tuesday inspected the proposed site for reconstruction of houses for the villagers here whose houses were reduced to ashes in a major fire mishap last month.

Mize said the decision of the relief committee on the selection of site for house construction would be final. He asked the construction agency to start the house construction work within a week, and advised the relief committee to keep sufficient gaps between two houses.
