Six hrs of relaxation – passes unobserved
Darjeeling: Six hours of relaxation was announced by the GNLF today in order to allow the people to prepare themselves for a long strike ahead. The relaxation that was scheduled from 10 am however, passed unobserved as the market remained closed and the people chose to stay at home. No communication from the Administration was also forthcoming on the suspension of the Section 144.
The strike had been called to demand the arrest of the assailants who attacked and wounded K. B. Gurung, a former DGHC Councillor and GNLF leader.
