The injured minors have been identified as Seilungmuon (1), Ningchintheng (7), and Nengkipahthem (15). They were promptly rushed to the nearby Saitual Hospital for immediate medical attention. Due to the gravity of their injuries, they were subsequently transferred to Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, for further specialized treatment and care.
