Bimal Gurung aides's homes gutted, cops smell bid to destroy evidence

In a sudden flare-up in West Bengal's northern hills, a police Sub Inspector was killed and three others were injured during an exchange of fire between the security forces and the Bimal Gurung faction of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha here on Friday, police said.

Additional Director General of Police Siddhinath Gupta said the state police had asked its Sikkim counterpart to intimate them about anyone entering the Northeastern state from Bengal with injuries.

One police officer was killed and four others were injured 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.

Few days back Gurung had told his supporters that he will appear before them on October 30.

"We came here around 3 am and found our house gutted", he said. The police recovered 6 AK 47 and some nine mm pistol and around 500 rounds of cartridges from the spot. The ADG also said that Bimal Gurung is believed to purchase weapons from these rebel groups. They are are claiming that the GJM supremo had links with the Maoists and insurgent groups in the north-east. "It is sending police personnel who do not have proper training to capture Gurung", Ghosh said. The state government should go for tripartite talks to solve the Darjeeling issue. "Bimal Gurung has to take responsibility", said Tamang, now in Kolkata, where he called on Banerjee.

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 region's Nepali-speaking Gorkha community has always been holding protests demanding a separate Gorkhaland state within India to protect their Himalayan culture.
