New Delhi:

A violent protest broke out between Gorkhaland Janmukti Morcha (GJM) supporters and police personnel in Alipurduar's Jaigaon. Several police personnel and protesters got injured in the incident.

The police personnel fired rubber bullets and used tear gas to contain the mob.

Earlier, GJM supporters took out rallies at Chowkbazar area of the hills carrying black flags in protest against the police action on pro-Gorkhaland supporters.

Shouting slogans against the state government, the protesters demanded the Centre's intervention in the matter.

Pro-Gorkhaland supporters had yesterday clashed with the police during which, the GJM had claimed, one of its supporters suffered a bullet injury.

The charge was, however, denied by the ADG (Law and Order) who had termed it as "completely baseless". Several protestors and police personnel were injured in the clashes that took place in Sukna area of the hills on Saturday.
