Earlier, the Supreme Court dismissed Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leader Bimal Gurung’s petitions seeking protection from arrest in connection with several cases against him by the state police and also seeking an independent probe into the alleged killings of ‘Gorkhaland’ supporters.
The police had earlier claimed that Gurung and some of his aides were absconding after being booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in connection with the violence in Darjeeling hills during the recent agitation for a separate Gorkhaland.
Gurung has approached the apex court seeking an independent probe into the alleged killings of Gorkhaland supporters during the protests.
