Man dies and police hurt as violence escalates in Darjeeling, India

Man dies and police hurt as violence escalates in Darjeeling, India”

As violence continued unabated in Darjeeling and Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh Friday night reviewed the security situation in the hill district of West Bengal.

"Whatever is happening is a deep rooted conspiracy", Banarjee told reporters. So many bombs and arms can not be gathered in a day.

"Although we are fundamentally supporting small states, each case has to be examined in its own light, and certain sensitivities, being borderline states, they have to be taken into consideration".

Clashes inDarjeeling between police and GJM protesters turned violent a day before as GJM protesters hurled petrol bombs, stones and bottles at the police.

"Five years you enjoyed, now when elections are coming you start violence because you have lost credibility", Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said in Kolkata, hitting out at the GJM leadership.

Banerjee had yesterday said that the GJM-led agitation in Darjeeling hills is a "deep-rooted conspiracy" supported by the insurgent groups of the Northeast and some foreign countries.

Widespread protests were reported from Singamari, the northern point of Darjeeling, as hundreds of GJM's women activists rallied with shrill condemnation of the raid, and shouted slogans for a separate Gorkhaland as they held aloft the tricolour.

Though hard to take a seat, Fleury remained an exceptional teammate, mentor, friend and confidante for Murray. There's a chance Murray will be replacing the 32-year-old Fleury on a full-time basis after this season.

As the violence escalated sharply on Saturday, a man died in clashes as protesters torched cars and set upon police with knives, who responded with tear gas and baton charges. We will arrest anybody found violating law and order in the hills.

Condemning the unprovoked action on the part of the Bengal police and their ‘indiscriminate torture of unarmed civilians on the streets of Darjeeling, the ABSU president also alleged that the recovery of the so-called lethal weapons from the office of the GJM as shown in the media footage was nothing but a planted act of the Bengal police.

The GJM has ruled out holding talks with the state authorities, saying it will only negotiate with India's central government. She is trying to mislead people. "We can not tolerate this hooliganism", Sharma said. Banerjee later said that Tamang was still alive and fighting for his life.

A senior GJM leader said on Sunday, "We will conduct the rally at Chowbazar with the bodies".

The hills have been under lockdown for the past 10 days and GJM leaders have said that the call for an indefinite strike will not be rolled back unless demands for Gorkhaland are met. "We had to resort to lathi- charge", the official said. "I want peace to be restored in the hills", Banerjee said adding that Tourism Minister Goutam Deb and PWD Minister Arup Biswas will take full care of the hills.

The GJM announced an indefinite general strike from last Monday in Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts and the Dooars to oppose the government's purported decision to make study of Bengali language compulsory in state-run schools - despite the government clarification this would not be applicable in this region - and to press for a separate state of Gorkhaland.
