This puzzle type appeared in Oguz Atay Puzzle Contest (OAPC) and 18th World Puzzle Championship, Antalya (Turkey) and I created it in year 2009 for the practice of Indian Puzzle Team participating in World Puzzle Championship 2009. There is one more puzzle of this type which I will be posting soon.
I am re-posting this Tapa Logic as 38th puzzle in Mini Puzzles Series.
