June 17, 2017- Two Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) supporters and an assistant commandant of the Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) were killed in fresh clashes as protests demanding a separate Gorkhaland turned ugly on Saturday.
The IRB second battalion Assistant Commandant Kiran Tamang was critically injured after being hit by a sharp weapon and succumbed to injuries at the hospital.
As the indefinite shutdown called by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) entered its third day, GJM supporters violated the orders and rallied to the streets. When police stopped them, they hurled stones and threw bottles at security personnel who retaliated by firing tear gas shells.
"It is sad that they (protesters) killed one of our assistant commanders TN Tamang," said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The turmoil was sparked off after the state government announced introduction of compulsory teaching of Bengali language in schools.
