Bharati Tamang threatens indefinite fast to pressure CBI for immediate arrest of morcha leaders

Bharati Tamang
Bharati Tamang, the widow of slain All India Gorkha League (AIGL) leader Madan Tamang has threatened to go on indefinite fast to press for immediate arrest of the 23 Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leaders against whom a city court in Kolkata issued a warrant of arrest.

Bharati Tamang made the threat on Tuesday but till this date no follow-up action has been initiated after the issuing of arrest warrant, AIGL General Secretary Pratap Khati said on Thursday.

"No stay order has been issued as yet against the warrant of arrest. So why is the CBI delaying?" he wondered and gave the apex probe agency a 24-hr deadline to initiate the arrest.

"The court has directed the execution of the warrant of arrest. We do not know why the CBI is delaying in making the arrest. Since there are no other options with us, I have decided to go on fast onto death," Khatin quoted Bharati Tamang as saying.

The AIGL has also written to the CBI director and joint director to apprise them about the delay and gave the agency 24-hour time failing which the fast will begin.

"We have written to the central agency director demanding the accused be arrested as soon as possible. We will give the CBI 24 hours' time after they receive our letter that we posted today. After that there will be the fast unto death," Khati said.

The AIGL leader also demanded seizure of passports of the 23 GJM leaders. (sns)
