Supreme Court tells GJM leaders to approach Calcutta high court for protection to participate in election campaigning
New Delhi: Gorkha Janmukti Morcha leaders Roshan Giri and Bimal Gurung, who have been seeking protection for campaigning for the Lok Sabha election, were advised by the Supreme Court, on Wednesday, to approach Calcutta high court within four days for the relief.
Both the leaders, Giri and Gurung, are accused in the 2010 Madan Tamang murder case and it is reported that several other cases are pending against them in West Bengal. However, Giri, on Tuesday, had approached the apex court accusing Mamata Banerjee-led government for implicating him in several “bogus cases” and for being “vindictive” towards him.
While strongly opposing the claims made by Giri, the West Bengal government has claimed that Giri was fugitive and there were incriminating material against him proving his involvement in various crimes.
According to the police, Madan Tamang, who was the All India Gorkha League president, was killed in Darjeeling on May 21, 2010 in a broad daylight. Giri has been charged with alleged “criminal conspiracy for murder” in the murder case of Tamang.
