Darjeeling (West Bengal): A little over a 100 days after Gorkha leader Madan Tamang was murdered in West Bengal's Darjeeling hills, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Monday filed chargesheet in a court of law naming 30 accused, even as prime suspect Nicole Tamang is absconding.
Public Prosecutor Govind Chettri said the 519-page chargesheet was filed at the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court here naming 30 accused, including two women-Babita Ganguly and Biva Sona Sherpa.
The chargesheet, filed at the bench of justice S P Rajak, however, has not named any top ranking leader of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) though an FIR had accused party president Bimal Gurung and general secretary Roshan Giri in the May 21 daylight murder.
Akhil Bharatiya Gorkha League (ABGL) president Madan Tamang was hacked to death near the Mall here.
ABGL's general secretary Laxman Pradhan filed an FIR the following day naming ten senior GJM leders as suspects in the murder of the 63-year-old leader.
