Mr. Sharma said Mr. Gurung was earlier hiding in Sikkim. But Gurung has told local media he will address his supporters on October 30, urging local people to take to the streets on that day.

Inspector General of law and order, West Bengal police Anuj Sharma said that Gurung and his associates fled during the police operation. "We feel ashamed of it", he said.
