As the indefinite strike called by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) enters its seventh day in Darjeeling Hills, protests over the demand for a separate state are set to intensify as GJM supporters assembled at Chowk Bazaar on Sunday morning. The silent rally was carried out to protest against the death of three activists. GJM chief Bimal Gurung had asked his supporters to defy curfew and gather for Sunday’s protest. On Saturday, at least three activists of the GJM were killed and several persons injured as protesters clashed with police in Darjeeling Hills. A senior police officer was also injured and is said to be in a critical condition. While the GJM claimed their three of their cadre were killed in police firing, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee denied the allegations. Army troops have also been deployed in the region.
