KURSEONG, 2 AUG: Demanding the immediate arrest of the sub-inspector of Kurseong police station, hundreds of residents of Naya Bajar- Kurseong organized a candle rally today on the premises of Kurseong town at around 7.00 p.m.
A daily wage labourer Barun Sharma (27), a resident of Naya Bajar, was shot dead by policemen at the victim’s cousin sister’s residence at Naya Bajar in Kurseong at around 9: 30 p.m. on 27 July night.
Sub-inspector, Mr Tejendra Ghalay, is one of the prime accused in killing Barun Sharma.
Four out of the five policemen on duty at the time have already been arrested by the Kurseong police, under section 302 and 34 of the IPC. Mr Tejendra Ghalay, the fifth, has not been arrested as yet. The arrested police constables have been identified as Mr Shanta Rai, Mr Dilip Chettri, Mr Saroj Chettri and Mr Bijay Pradhan.
One resident of Naya Bajar, Mr Krishna Singh said: “Mr Ghalay is the prime accused and has not been arrested as yet, hence we will stage several protest programs until he is arrested.”
As per a senior police officer, the case has been forwarded to the CID and the police have been looking for Mr Ghalay everywhere and he will be arrested soon.
Protesting against the incident, the residents of Naya Bajar had recently staged a road blockade at Kurseong Motar Stand for an hour and submitted deputations to the concerned authorities demanding that the present investigation agency be changed and that the absconding accused be immediately arrested.
