Kolkata: Maoists on Wednesday slammed the state

killing two in the Darjeeling hills and lent its support to
the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha`s movement for a separate
Gorkhaland.

"We condemn the way the police opened fire on innocent
agitators at Sipchu on Tuesday that left two dead", CPI-Maoist

"Maoists are sympathetic to the GJM for its movement
in the hills and support it," the statement said.
