    Narayana IND/69046 , attached to 345 Wing , died at 12:00 Hours after being shot. Two RAF Officer's, F/O Nutt and F/L Obal , saw a Burmese armed with a knife and went in search of him with their revolvers to search for him in the jungle . Two shots were heard and they came across Narayan badly wounded being attended to by F/L Swain who had been awakened by the shots. The RAF SIB seemed rather suspicious of the circumstances but I can find no further outcome
