Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 31, 2009

Kurseong, 30 JULY: Demanding a change of the investigation agency as well as immediate arrest of the sub-inspector of Kurseong police station, hundreds of Naya Bajar- Kurseong locals staged a road blockade at Kurseong Motor Stand. The blockade started from 4 p.m. and lasted for an hour.
One daily wage labourer Barun Sharma (27), a resident of Naya Bajar, was shot dead by a policemen at the victim’s cousin sister’s residence at Naya Bajar in Kurseong at around 9:30 p.m. on 27 July.
The sub-inspector, Mr Tejendra Ghalay, is one of the prime accused in killing Barun Sharma. Four policemen have already been arrested by the Kurseong police, under section 302 and 34 of the IPC, while the fifth policeman on duty at the time, Tejendra Ghalay, still roams free. The arrested police constables have been identified as Mr Shanta Rai, Mr Dilip Chettri, Mr Saroj Chettri and Mr Bijay Pradhan.
A resident of Naya Bajar, Mr Pramod Chettri, said that since the policemen accused and the policemen investigating the incident are from the same police station there may be bias in the case. Another local, Mr Krishna Singh, said that Mr Ghalay is the prime accused and has not been arrested, hence they would stage a road block everyday from today until his arrest. He also said that tomorrow they would submit a deputation to the Darjeeling DM.
