"Bimal Gurung Linked With Maoists & Other Insurgent Groups"- ADG (Law & Order)

The police conducted an early morning raid at Takvar area near Patlibash, after receiving an intelligence input that absconding GJM chief Bimal Gurung might be hiding there, the report added.

The West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights (WBCPCR) has summoned Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung for "repeated gross violation of child rights", the statutory body's chief said on Saturday.

A West Bengal Police sub-inspector was shot dead and four policemen were injured in a gun battle between the police and Gurung's supporters near Patlebas on Friday.

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

Ruling Trinamool Congress hit back saying Ghosh should refrain from "speaking in support of" the "anti-nationals" who killed the police officer. “We will not allow this to happen at any cost, even if we have to make sacrifices, ” he said.

Later, police recovered nine AK 47 rifles, a Berretta pistol, a point 22 bore rifle, a musket, a radio manpack, over 1,800 rounds of ammunition, 20 gelatine sticks, more than 1,000 detonators, camping materials, a sophisticated binocular and batteries. "If I need to die, I will do so before the people", he had said.

Accusing Gurung of having links with Maoists and northeast insurgent groups, Sharma said the beleaguered GJM leader wanted to disturb the peace process. The state government should go for tripartite talks to solve the Darjeeling issue.

Tamang has been made the chairman of Board of Administrators of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration by the state's Mamata Banerjee government.

This is the first such incident of violence after the 104-day long indefinite shutdown in the hills was called off on September 26 by Gurung following an appeal by Union home minister Rajnath Singh. The GJM had called the shutdown, which was lasted for over 100 days, demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland.
