Bengal child rights body summons GJM chief

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.

During the clash, Sub-Inspector Amitava Malik (30) and four other policemen were injured. Intelligence sources say that Gurung is not being able to come to terms with the winds of change in his party.

"We don't want the Darjeeling hills to become another Kashmir", he told reporters in Kolkata.

In connection to the attack on the police in Darjeeling last night, ADG Anuj Sharma said that they had received a tip-off that Bimal Gurung was planning to sneak into Darjeeling from the neighbouring state of Sikkim. The police recovered 6 AK 47 and some nine mm pistol and around 500 rounds of cartridges from the spot.

Mr Gurung has been in hiding since August after cases under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act were registered against him for his alleged involvement in several bomb blasts in Darjeeling and adjoining areas.

Significantly, the violence returned to the hills three days before a meeting called by the state government to find a solution to the Darjeeling issue.

The GJM is an ally of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

The long running shutdown has also resulted in severe loss to the economy of the region that is dependent on summer tourism.

Incidentally, Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee has already appointed expelled GJM leaders Binoy Tamang and Anit Thapa as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of board of administrators in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA), the semi-autonomous body to run the affairs in the hills. Even as he and others fled the camp, firing at the police, one person was arrested, said Akhilesh Chaturvedi, Darjeeling district's superintendent of police.
