At least two columns of army personnel are now guarding the Singmari and Patlabus area which had witnessed clashes between the security force and the supporters of the Gorkha Janamukti morcha yesterday.
Meanwhile, violence continues unabated in different areas of the hill district. Agitators stormed into different government offices, forest lodge and also hydro power station. 
Normal life has been totally disturbed following yesterdays major disturbance.
The current bout of trouble began when the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee, on May 16, said that Bengali would be made complusary for all students across the State.
