Bengal child rights body summons GJM chief

Bengal child rights body summons GJM chief

A sub-inspector was killed and four policemen were injured today when alleged supporters of GJM chief Bimal Gurung fired at them at a forest area near here where Gurung was suspected to be hiding.

A day after Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung narrowly escaped from an encounter near Darjeeling on Friday that claimed the life of a police officer, the West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Righs (WBCPCR) issued a fresh summon to the GJM supremo for allegedly abusing child rights during the 104-day strike for Gorkhaland statehood.

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

"We will not allow this to happen at any cost, even if we have to make sacrifices", he said.

Sharma said, during the clashes, Gurung and his close associates fled to the neighbouring state of Sikkim. "Several police vehicles passed through the area but none stopped to help", said a member of the Gurung-led GJM faction.

The ADG said a cornered Gurung, who has lost mass support in recent times, was trying to foment trouble in the hills.

One person has been arrested, said Chaturvedi, but refused to give out his identity. The arms haul conclusively establishes his links with insurgent groups and Maoists, he added.

Around evening, the police found another large cache of arms and ammunition in Pedong of Kalimpong district. "Bimal Gurung has to take responsibility", said Tamang, now in Kolkata, where he called on Banerjee.

According to the Newspaper, However, we strongly oppose what the state government is doing in Darjeeling hills.

The GJM had on September 26 announced the withdrawal of its indefinite shutdown in the northern West Bengal hills.

Friday's incident queers the pitch for the proposed tripartite talks at the Union home ministry over the demand for a separate state of Gorkhaland.

The Chief Minister is scheduled to attend the October 16 meeting at the state secretariat Nabanna.
