Kalimpong, March 25: The GNLF (C), a constituent of the PDF, has decided to launch a campaign to hasten
the probe into the killing of former GNLF leader C.K. Pradhan, four-and-half years ago.
Pradhan, a one-time lieutenant of GNLF chief Subash Ghisingh, fell out with his mentor and was removed from his post as councillor-in-charge of health. A few months later he was gunned down by unidentified assailants here on October 3, 2002. The same year, CK’s supporters formed the GNLF (C). The CBI has taken up the case , but the investigations seem far from complete.
The core committee of the GNLF (C) met at the residence of late Pradhan recently and expressed dismay at the tardy pace of the probe. “We will launch a series of programmes, including hunger strikes and road
blockades, to press for our demand,” said party president D.K. Pradhan. “We have decided to go alone because the PDF has not been taking any initiative on this issue.”
The GNLF (C) president said his party would not shy away from approaching Ghisingh in its effort to nail the killers of C.K. Pradhan.
