Siddhinath Gupta, additional director general of police, said West Bengal police sub-inspector Amitabha Malik was killed and four police personnel were severely injured after supporters of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) fired at a police party on the lookout for Gurung. They were rushed to a local hospital, where Malik succumbed to injuries.
The incident comes soon after a sub-inspector was killed in a clash between police and alleged supporters of Gurung.
The GJM claimed one of its activists was also killed in the exchange of fire.
"We told him that the centre must intervene as soon as possible, and call us for talks on all the pending issues, including Gorkhaland", he said.
Gurung was in hiding in neighbouring Sikkim and had tried to enter Darjeeling hills today, Sharma said.
