Nicole Tamang, Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) leader and the prime accused in killing of Madan Tamang, president of All India Gorkha League (AIGL), escaped from CID custody in Darjeeling`s Pintail Village on Sunday.
A senior Gorkha Janmukti
Morcha leader Sunday resigned from the party "in protest
against" the murder of All India Gorkha League chief Madan
Tamang, but the GJM sought to downplay the issue saying he was
not a "direct" member.
