Darjeeling Feb 28: The Darjeeling Session court today ordered two days police remand of the five arrested Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leaders in connection with the Madan Tamang murder case. Tamang was the All India Gorkha League president who was hackled to death on May 21, 2010.

The court earlier had rejected the CBI’s plea for a remand. The five had been arrested on Feb 15 from near a local taxi stand. The accused will have to be produced tomorrow again at the Darjeeling chief judicial Magistrate court according to the order.

  “The murder of Tamang is a crime that was hatched through conspiracies. The arrested persons had been absconding since a long time despite their names figured in the charge sheet filed by the CBI. Since the case is still under investigation, the court feels that more interrogation of the accused is required. That is why the court accepted the remand plea of the CBI today,” said Pankaj Prasad, the Assistant Public Prosecutor.

The five, immediately after the court sent them to judicial custody initially was ironically admitted to the hospital because of ill health following which the ABGL leaders dissatisfied with the move has petitioned the Supreme court and written to the Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee. The Supreme Court has already agreed to form a ‘Special Investigative Team’ to look into Tamang murder case.
