Threat to fill jails

TT, Kalimpong, Feb. 24: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha today threatened to launch a jail bharo agitation in the hills and the Dooars if all the 18 people arrested in connection with the Sukna arson were not released within 72 hours.
Eighteen people were rounded up and sent to jail after a mob, demanding the arrest of a murder accused, had burnt down a police outpost at Sukna, 10km from Siliguri, on Sunday night.
“They (the arrested people) are all victims of the state government’s conspiracy. The police should release them in 72 hours or else, we will launch a jail bharo. All cases against the arrested should be dropped also,” said Morcha assistant secretary Binay Tamang after a meeting of the party’s frontal organisations. The meeting was chaired by Morcha president Bimal Gurung.
Tamang accused the police of letting lose a reign of terror in Sukna following the Sunday’s incident. “Party vice-president Raju Pradhan, secretary Roshan Giri and myself had been touring Sukna for the past few days. Because of frequent raids by the police, the residents are leaving their homes,” he alleged.
The Morcha has been saying from the beginning that people responsible for the arson were not its supporters.
All the arrested are the residents of Sukna and they included a Morcha leader, Vikash Chhetri, and two students.
In another development, the Morcha decided to revoke the suspension of its central committee member Bimal Darji. He had been suspended by the party on September 27 on alleged corruption charges.
“The party had been keeping a close watch on Bimal Darji for four months and was satisfied with his conduct as well as the dedication he had shown towards the party during the time. Consequently, he has been brought back to the central committee,” said Tamang.
IG rules out ‘permanent structure’
TT, Siliguri, Feb. 24: Police authorities in north Bengal have no plan of constructing a permanent structure for the Sukna outpost that had been set on fire by local people on Sunday.

The inspector-general of police, north Bengal, K.L. Tamta, who visited the gutted wooden structure along with forest officials today, also ruled out upgrading the outpost.

“I have come to visit the new outpost, which has been set up in a space provided by the forest department. From now, our personnel will work from the new office. There is no immediate plan for a permanent structure,” Tamta said after the inspection. Asked about the plan to upgrade the outpost into a police station, he said: “I have no idea about such plans.”
Tamta was accompanied by chief conservator of forest of north Bengal Shilwant Patel and other forest officials.
The new outpost, comprising eight officers and 16 constables, will function from a forest quarters, about 300 metres from the previous building. Sukna is 10km from Siliguri.
Traffic on NH55 that runs through Sukna connecting Darjeeling with Siliguri was normal today, but local markets remained shut. The CRPF patrolled different areas of the locality.
Work starts on Sikkim link
TT, Calcutta, Feb 24: The construction of a new railway link connecting north Bengal to Sikkim has begun with Ircon International Limited, a public sector undertaking incorporated with the Indian Railways, starting work on the 44km stretch between Sevoke and Rangpo two years after the plan was mooted.
The general manager of the Northeast Frontier Railway, Shiv Kumar, and senior officials of the railways and Ircon, attended the ground-breaking ceremony at Rangpo on the Bengal-Sikkim border on Saturday.
Ircon sources said the estimated project cost is around Rs 3,300 crore.
Ircon’s general manager, eastern region, Anil Kumar Gupta, said engineers were already working on the access roads to reach the proposed track alignment. “The terrain is a challenging one and we have to first reach the areas through which the railway line will pass. After that, we will be able to conduct a survey and arrive at the final estimate,” Gupta said.
He said Ircon had experience in constructing railway lines in Jammu and Kashmir.
“An estimated 70 per cent of the total stretch to Sikkim will have to be either through tunnels or viaducts in order to make progress through one hill to the other, spanning deep gorges. The viaducts will have to be constructed on high pillars,” the general manager said.
The project will take five years to complete once the funds are sanctioned. The first railway link to the Himalayan state will help boost the state’s economy as well as its economic mainstay, tourism.
Senior officials of the NFR said after the Sevoke-Rangpo track laying is completed by 2015, there are plans to take the link up to Gangtok.
“The railway connectivity to Sikkim is important as the India army has deployment along the border with China in the state. The railway line will vastly improve troop movement as they will not have to rely solely on the state’s only road link with the rest of India, NH31A,” an official said.
