A Railway Protection Force (RPF) office, a police outpost and a state-run library were set on fire in the Darjeeling hills as the indefinite strike demanding a separate state entered its 30th day yesterday, police said.
Four additional companies of CRPF are being sent to maintain law and order in Darjeeling and Kalimpong which have been hit by the agitation for Gorkhaland, the Centre yesterday told the Supreme Court. The government told the court that 11 CRPF companies are already deployed in Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts.
