Bimal Gurung plans to enter Darjeeling before Oct 30: Intel


The detained person has admitted that Gurung was holed up at the camp near the Sikkim-West Bengal border for over a month, Chaturvedi added. It left a police officer and a civilian killed and several others injured.

The police claimed that the houses were set ablaze by Gurung's supporters to wipe out evidence.

The security forces were moving towards Patlebas after receiving specific inputs that GJM president Gurung was camping in the area. “We will not allow this to happen at any cost, even if we have to make sacrifices, ” he said.

The police have also recovered 500 rounds of bullets, 6 AK47 assault rifles and one countrymade pistol from the spot that was raided. He said that the police officials were attacked by Gurung's supporters when they went to raid the area in search of the GJM Chief.

Chairman of Board of Administrators (BoA) for Darjeeling Binay Tamang on Sunday apprised West Bengal Governor K.N. Tripathi about the situation in the northern hills including the recent large haul of arms and ammunition and urged him to facilitate tripartite talks on the knotty issue by taking up the matter with the central government.


Though Union home minister Rajnath Singh appealed to Gurung to withdraw the indefinite strike in Darjeeling, the Centre must now decide if it wants to involve a "fugitive" in the discussions, said an officer in Kolkata, asking not to be named.

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

After cases under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act were filed against him for his alleged involvement in various bomb blasts in Darjeeling and adjoining areas, Gurung has gone into hiding.

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.
