MATMUR JAMOH

In the Eastern Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh, Matmur Jamoh, the leader of Yakrung village, sought revenge against English officer Williamson for humiliating him two years prior. In March 1911, Matmur led a group of Adi warriors who killed Williamson in Komsingh village, while another group killed Dr. Grigorson in Bangui. Matmur went into hiding and very little information is available about his last days in Cellular prison.
