Murder accused in Sikkim 
TT, Darjeeling, May 23: Two days after the murder of ABGL president Madan Tamang, police fear that the main accused, all members of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s frontal organisations, have taken shelter in neighbouring Sikkim. 
K.L. Tamta, the inspector-general of police, north Bengal, said: “We believe that the six named in the FIR for being directly involved in the murder have crossed over to Sikkim. I have spoken to the police officials in Sikkim and joint raids will be conducted along the border areas.”  
The six named in the FIR lodged by ABGL general secretary Laxman Pradhan are Alokkant Mani Thulung, Puran Thami (youth wing leaders), Kismat Chhetri and Keshav Raj Pokhral (student leaders), Tenzing Khambachay and Dinesh Gurung (both town committee members). Seven others, including Morcha chief Bimal Gurung, have also been named in the FIR for indulging in criminal conspiracy.  
However, the police arrested Sangay Tshering Bhutia, president of the Janmukti Hotel Owners’ Association, from Kurseong last night. Bhutia was named in an FIR lodged by Dawa Sherpa, state secretary of the BJP, for vandalising his hotel-cum-residence on Gandhi Road on Friday. Bhutia, who was released today on bail by the Darjeeling judicial magistrate, has been asked to report at the local police station once a week.  
While peace marches with lighted candles continued today, Anmole Prasad, a Kalimpong-based lawyer and Morcha spokesperson for the first three rounds of tripartite talks between the party, Centre and the state, said he “would no longer be attached to the Morcha” after the “heinous and inconsolable murder of Madan Tamang”. 
Morcha spokesperson Harka Bahadur Chhetri, too, said if anyone from the outfit was implicated in the murder, he would quit the party. 
Sukman Moktan, secretary general of the Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangh, an apolitical organisation with a pan-Indian reach, today demanded that “all private armies and forces be banned”. He was referring to the Gorkhaland Personnel, a voluntary force raised by the Morcha. The CPRM also has a “force”, the Sawamsevak Bahini. “Political parties in the hills have private armies and forces. These must be banned immediately. We also demand a CBI inquiry into the killing,” said Moktan.  
The Morcha has appealed to hill residents to keep their business establishments shut for a day in Darjeeling tomorrow as a mark of respect to Tamang. The ABGL leader’s funeral will take place in Meghma, 35km from Darjeeling, tomorrow.
