Darjeeling: The Gorkha Janamukti Morcha

tomorrow to allow the administration more time to find Nicol
Tamang, the main accused in the killing of Gorkha leader Madan
Tamang, who escaped from CID custody last week.
The decision to defer the bandh was taken after a meeting
with Darjeeling District Magistrate Surendra Gupta and
Superintendent of Police Devendra Pratao Singh, GJM Assistant
Secretary Benoy Tamang told newsmen here.
"They have been given time till 12:00 pm on August 30 to
produce Nicol Tamang in court," he said.
Nicole, a close aide of GJM president Bimal Gurung and a
central committee member, escaped from CID custody on August
22 from the Pintail village, near Siliguri.
