12-hour bandh in Kurseong

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 9, 2009

Kurseong, July 8: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha has called a 12-hour general strike in the Kurseong subdivision tomorrow, demanding the immediate release of its three supporters arrested for alleged assault on some GNLF workers yesterday.

The Morcha supporters have been also accused of ransacking the house of a Panighata-based GNLF leader Rajen Mukhia. The arrests were made after Mukhia filed an FIR. Posters came up in Mirik Bazar today demanding the “immediate and unconditional release” of those arrested.

“We have called a 12-hour strike tomorrow to protest against the arrest. If they are not freed immediately, we will extend the bandh till the time they are let off,” said Pradeep Pradhan, a Morcha vice-president.
