Report sought on Tamang's disappearance

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: The Calcutta High Court on Thursday directed the State government to submit within a week a detailed report on the disappearance of Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) activist Nikol Tamang, who escaped from police custody on August 22, a few days after arrest in the Madan Tamang murder case.

The directive by a Division Bench of Chief Justice J. N. Patel and Justice Ashim Roy came on a habeas corpus petition moved by Prema Tamang, wife of Nikol Tamang, alleging that police killed her husband and demanding that he be produced, dead or alive.

If dissatisfied with the government report, the court could contemplate ordering a CBI probe into Nikol's disappearance, the Bench said.

He was one of the prime accused in the case of the May 21, 2010 murder in Darjeeling of Madan Tamang, a leader of the Akhil Bharatiya Gorkha League and bitter critic of the GJM leadership.
