Describing the movement for a separate state for the Nepali-speaking community as an "insurgency", and the current situation as "extremely alarming", Anuj Sharma, the state's additional director general of police (law and order), said in an affidavit that "with the help of conspirators" miscreants had snatched at least half a dozen firearms and several rounds of ammunition from security forces since 20 June.

More central forces in Darjeeling has been a key and consistent demand of the Bengal government as it has accused the Centre of fomenting trouble in the district and has struggled to contain the violent agitation for a separate Gorkhaland state.

The government told a three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra that 11 CRPF companies are already deployed in Darjeeling and Kalimpong and they have chose to send four more companies to ensure the safety of citizens and to maintain law and order there.

The court also asked the state government to provide additional forces from its own resources to bring back normalcy in the hills. Ration shops are closed.

The Calcutta High Court today directed the Centre to provide four additional companies of CRPF within 48 hours in Darjeeling to quell violence in the hills.

The Supreme Court order, from a bench of justices Dipak Misra, A M Khanwilkar and M M Shanatanagoudar, said the deployment of four more CRPF companies was required to maintain law and order and to remove a blockade from NH-10 connecting Sikkim to Bengal. It further directed the Director General of Police to ensure safe passage of people travelling in vehicles on National Highway 10, the sole road linking West Bengal's Siliguri to Sikkim.
