Darjeeling: Several policemen injured in fresh clashes with GJM supporters

Darjeeling: Several policemen injured in fresh clashes with GJM supporters”

Justifying the raid, police claim Gurung supporters had hidden arms and explosives at the hideout ahead of his October 30 public appearance in Darjeeling.

When police were searching houses at Limbu Basti, the GJM activists had reportedly started firing aiming at the cops.

They were searching for the head of the party Bimal Gurung, who has been on the run since government prosecutors brought terrorism charges against him over a 104-day protest that crippled the region and left almost a dozen people dead. During the clashes, several policemen, including a sub-inspector were injured and 2 are reported to be dead.

Following the incident, a very heavy police force along with Central paramilitary forces were deployed to the scene, a police official said.

Police have recovered 6 AK-47 rifles, 1 9mm pistol, ammunition, bombs & bomb-making material.

Last night, Bimal Gurung issued an audio tape from an undisclosed location in which he said that he would be coming to the hills soon since he has the support of lakhs of people.

On 27 Sep, hours after the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh appealed to them to call off the strike and invited them for talks to find an amicable solution regarding the demand of Gorkhaland, the GJM Chief had announced the withdrawal of its indefinite shutdown in Darjeeling, 105 days after the shutdown began.

One police officer was killed and four others were injured on Friday in a gunfight with suspected separatists in Darjeeling, the famous tea-growing region of eastern India that has been roiled by protests in recent months.
