"A sub-inspector of the state police died and four were injured in cross-firing between the police and Gorkha Janamukti Morcha supporters loyal to Bimal Gurung", said Anuj Sharma, additional director general of police for the eastern state of West Bengal. They were rushed to a local hospital, where Malik succumbed to injuries. It left a police officer and a civilian killed and several others injured.

Few days back Gurung had told his supporters that he will appear before them on October 30.

"We will not allow this to happen at any cost, even if we have to make sacrifices", he said.

Gurung was in hiding in neighbouring Sikkim and had tried to enter Darjeeling hills today, Sharma said. Intelligence sources say that Gurung is not being able to come to terms with the winds of change in his party.

The police have also recovered 500 rounds of bullets, 6 AK47 assault rifles and one countrymade pistol from the spot that was raided.

Accusing Gurung of having links with Maoists and northeast insurgent groups, Sharma said the beleaguered GJM leader wanted to disturb the peace process.

Around evening, the police found another large cache of arms and ammunition in Pedong of Kalimpong district. The state government has branded Gurung a fugitive involved in subversive activities, but he continues to claim that he, as GJM president, is the true representative of the Gorkha community. "The law will take its own course", he warned.

The shutdown was lifted on September 27, hours after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh appealed to the GJM to call off the over three-month-long strike and invited them for talks to find an amicable solution to the issue.

The region's Nepali-speaking Gorkha community has always been holding protests demanding a separate Gorkhaland state within India to protect their Himalayan culture.
