ASI Killed In Clashes Between Police, Bimal Gurung's Supporters Over Gorkhaland Agitation

The injured police personnel have been admitted to hospital.

Early in the morning at 5 am, today, violence once again broke out in the hills of West Bengal, when the Kolkata police raided a forest area near Patlebas in Darjeeling.

A sub-inspector was killed after alleged supporters of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) faction led by Bimal Gurung clashed with police in Darjeeling on Friday. "A police vehicle has been set on fire", Sharma told reporters at the State Secretariat.

Deb said, "We have been appealing Bimal Gurung and his followers not to create violence but they do not believe in democratic agitiation, they instead want bloodshed and disturb the peace in hills". Over a specific information that he had returned to Darjelling, the police raided the Takvar area near Patlibash.

The hearing was done by a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice, Dipak Misra . The court deferred the matter to November 21.

Gurung has been on the run for quite some time, with the state police slapping cases under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, as also for waging war against the government and organising terrorist camps. However, Gurung has reportedly escaped from the spot.

Six assault rifles, 500 rounds of ammunition, pistol, gelatine sticks were recovered. The GJM has been at the forefront of the Gorkhaland movement, demanding that a separate State be carved out from the Darjeeling hills. The agitation has been going on for over 100 days and has till now resulted in 13 people losing their lives. On the appeal of Mr Rajnath Singh, the Union Home Minister, GJM president, Bimal Gurung had called off the 104 days Darjeeling bandh and had appealed to the people to maintain peace and wait for the outcome of the meeting with the Central Government.

Directly implicating Gurung for the death of the cop, Sharma said: "It all happened under Bimal Gurung's leadership" but also conceded that the heavy and sudden firepower caused casualties among the police contingent.
