GORKHALAND SUPPORTERS BURNT DOWN TOURIST INFORMATION OFFICE IN DARJEELING :

Gorkhaland supporters  set ablaze a panchayat office and damaged a few government vehicles on the 28th day of the indefinite shutdown in Darjeeling. The indefinite bandh in the hills entered the 29th day which has brought life to a standstill across Darjeeling and neighbouring areas. According to ANI, a mob late on Wednesday night set on fire to the office of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration Tourist Information at Chowrasta in Darjeeling. The supporters of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, which spearheaded the agitation, went on a rally at Chowkbazar in Darjeeling on Wednesday, with the body of Ashok Tamang.  Tamang died on Tuesday night in a hospital where he was admitted after being allegedly injured in Saturday’s clashes between the police and GJM supporters.  The GJM claimed that Tamang received serious head injuries during a baton charge by the police. The police, however, said it was not clear whether he died of injuries or some other reason.    The Rediff.com : 13th. July,17
