The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday termed the “janata curfew” as another way to impose bandh in the hills of Darjeeling and asked the GJM to file an affidavit by September 5 explaining why it should not be asked to compensate for paralysing life in the region. The GJM has been demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland.

Stating that the ongoing bandh in the hills was a clear violation of the High Court’s order,the Division Bench of Chief Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Joymalya Bagchi said the shutdown violated fundamental and human rights.
