Total No. of families 4104.
@AVG 5 persons per family

Total number of persons = 20520 in one area only. 60,000 are in other areas. People are deeply scared and do not want to return home. When asked why, they replied that our neighbor has attacked us. How can we believe that it will not happen again. Secondly how can we face those who disrespected our women in our presence?

ZFI teams have repeatedly urged them to start working. Many have started earning their living but the amounts earned by the labour is barely sufficient to feed the family.
