Two people, including a policeman killed during clashes with GJM supporters

Cop Reported Dead In Encounter With Suspected Supporters Of Gorkha Leader

Darjeeling: Darjeeling is once again on the boil with clashes between Gorkha Janmukti Morcha supporters and police.

Apparently, some GJM workers opened fire on the cops leading to retaliation and clashes. A cop is among two dead.

According to the channel, the clashes began after the police raided a workshop in Darjeeling's Takvar, where arms were being manufactured. An assistant sub-inspector reportedly died in the gunfire while four policemen were injured. Acting on an information that Gurung was hiding in the area, the police conducted raids during which the GJM leader's supporters fired and pelted stones, they said, adding that the clashes are still on. West Bengal's picturesque hill station of Darjeeling recently bounced back to life following the withdrawal of the over three-month-long protest by the GJM. The GJM had called the shutdown, which was lasted for over 100 days, demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland.
