Will scenes like this return in the north Bengal hills again that’s the question after Friday’s clashes between the police and GJM supporters

A day after Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung narrowly escaped from an encounter near Darjeeling on Friday that claimed the life of a police officer, the West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Righs (WBCPCR) issued a fresh summon to the GJM supremo for allegedly abusing child rights during the 104-day strike for Gorkhaland statehood.

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. They had to face a horde of Gurung's supporters, who fired at the police and managed to kill Sub Inspector Amitabh Mullick along with injuring two other officials.

Ruling Trinamool Congress hit back saying Ghosh should refrain from "speaking in support of" the "anti-nationals" who killed the police officer. "We feel ashamed of it", he said.

According to him, intelligence reports suggest that Gurung has been in touch with Maoists and other North East-based insurgent groups.

Six AK-47 rifles, one 9mm pistol, 500 rounds of ammunition and bombs had been recovered from the spot, he added.

Directly implicating Gurung for the death of the cop, Sharma said: "It all happened under Bimal Gurung's leadership" but also conceded that the heavy and sudden firepower caused casualties among the police contingent.
