Darjeeling- Violence Continue, Army redeployed

New Delhi

The Army was redeployed in West Bengal’s Darjeeling hills after fresh violence broke out following the death a youth allegedly in police firing on Saturday.

Local police, however, claimed that no bullet was fired from their side on Saturday and they don’t have any idea about the death of the GNLF supporter.

Gorkhaland supporters torched a police outpost and a toy train station after a youth was killed in alleged police firing last night.

Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee asked political parties in the Darjeeling hills to return to the path of peace and sit with the government for talks.

The Centre had said yesterday that it was keen on holding tripartite talks with the GJM and the West Bengal government to end the agitation.
