"Maoists from a neighbouring country have infiltrated into the area and are going to target government officials working in the hills", the state government said, referring to intelligence inputs and stressed on the need for additional deployment of central forces.

A bench comprising chief justice Nishita Mhatre and Tapabrata Chakraborty on Friday asked the Centre to dispatch within 48 hours at least four additional companies of central forces, augmenting the now deployment of 11 companies, after the state alleged that the Union home ministry was not immediately willing to send more forces to West Bengal. Several government buildings have been burnt down and hydel power projects shut down as the violence, which started in the second week of June, has claimed several lives.

Earlier, after hearing the PIL over the issue, Chief Justice Nishita Mhatre observed that people are in a sad situation. The Centre had already sent seven companies of paramilitary forces, including three companies of women CRPF personnel, and three of theSSB, to the hills augmenting the three already present there. People in the hills are suffering and property being setablaze. Schools have been closed. It seems as if the Centre and the State are not anxious.

Hong Kong court disqualifies 4 lawmakers over oath taking
Activists say the city government's efforts in disqualifying democratically elected lawmakers is a direct assault on the city's freedoms.

The HC, which received a report from the chief judge of the city sessions court on the pre-trial status of the Madan Tamang murder case, also directed the CBI to file an affidavit by Tuesday before it heard the matter again on Wednesday. The petition sought a direction to the Centre and state government to ensure safety of vehicles on NH-10, saying that about 20 trucks ferrying supplies to Sikkim were vandalised and their drivers attacked by pro-Gorkhaland activists.

The administration said the Centre should not re-deploy central paramilitary forces from areas affected by so called Left Wing Extremism (LWE), and that only additional forces should be sent to Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts. "Without deploying the forces properly, the State Government has been demanding more".
