Name of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha leaders in CBI chargesheet
The following are some of the charges listed in the CBI chargesheet against the leadership of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha in the Madan Tamang assassination case.
A court had given permission to the CBI to arrest the leaders, who have denied the charges and have sought anticipatory bail from Calcutta High Court. The bail plea is pending in court.

Bimal Gurung, 51
As president of the Morcha, he had the final say in all major actions committed by party workers. Since 2007, when the Morcha was formed, there were many attacks on the offices, meetings and residence of ABGL leader Madan Tamang.
Gurung hatched a criminal conspiracy along with other Morcha leaders and in several meetings, he threatened to finish off the Opposition in Darjeeling. In furtherance of the criminal conspiracy, he took the extreme step of organising his supporters to attack Madan and kill him as the latter had repeatedly highlighted the alleged corruption of the top leadership of the Morcha, including that of Gurung.
On the day of the incident, Gurung was in Kalimpong along with Dinesh Theeng, Devendra Sharma, Binay Tamang, Col Ramesh Allay and most of the Morcha leadership. Gurung's bodyguard, Dinesh Rai alias Kaila, who had struck the deadly blow on Madan and killed him, was in Darjeeling town. Sharma and Theeng were regularly getting updates about the progress of events during that attack in Darjeeling from Nikkal Tamang alias Nickol Tamang.
At a meeting at Chandraman Dhura organised days before Madan was killed on May 21, 2010, Bimal Gurung had openly said he would kill all Opposition leaders.
In April 2010, he was at Salbari, near Siliguri, and Nikkal Tamang was heard telling him: " Daju (Gurung), we have to get rid of Madan."
In the first week of May 2010, Bimal Gurung had a meeting with the other accused - Roshan Giri, Binay Tamang, Harka Bahadur Chhetri, Asha Gurung, Pradip Pradhan, Col Ramesh Allay, Devendra Sharma, Dinesh Theeng and some other leaders - at the Singamari party office "where they had conspired to prevent Madan from carrying out his political activities in the hills and even eliminate him if the situation so demanded".
