  • Drajeeling unrest Clashes erupt between GJM supporters and Police 1 officer 1 supporter dead

Kolkata: A sub-inspector of police was gunned down and two security personnel were injured when the supporters of Gorkha Janamukti Morch (GJM) president Bimal Gurung allegedly fired at them near Singla Bastee near the West Bengal and Sikkim border on Friday morning.

"The GJM workers, who were armed, started firing".

By now, it is clear that Gurung has lost popular support in Darjeeling, said Anuj Sharma, additional director general of police (law and order).

The hills, after much struggle and suffering had returned to peace just a few days back on 27 Sep and just as the people were trying to be relaxed that finally there is peace, another incident disturbed the people of Darjeeling, forcing them to live under the feeling of fear.

Sharma conceded that the heavy and sudden firepower caused casualties among the police contingent. We have recovered six AK-47 assault rifles, one 9 mm pistol, 500 rounds of ammunition and bombs from the place where a police party was ambushed by his group near Darjeeling today, ” Sharma told reporters here.

Accusing Gurung of having links with Maoists and northeastern insurgent groups, Sharma said the beleaguered GJM leader wanted to disturb the peace process.

Meanwhile, the police said that it had intelligence inputs that Gurung was hiding near Patlebas.

The GJM, that has been spearheading the revived movement of Gorkhaland in the hills, is now a divided house, with a section of activists remaining with GJM chief Gurung while another faction has shifted allegiance towards expelled party leader Binay Tamang. The GJM had called the shutdown, which was lasted for over 100 days, demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland.

Tamang will on Monday take part in the official meeting on Darjeeling issue.
