Darjeeling, the beautiful 'Queen of the Hills', is reeling under the ill effects of an indefinite strike.
Last week, three persons were arrested in Darjeeling for their alleged involvement in arson and violence that took place in the hills in June.
The situation in Darjeeling hills remains tense, although no incident of violence was reported. The indefinite strike demanding a separate state in the hills is underway for more than two months.
The Internet service in the hills remains suspended since June 18, 2017. The indefinite strike has hit local economy. Because the situation is tense, the tourism industry has hit badly. Tourism is a major revenue source in the region.
As efforts are underway to restore normalcy, let's discover the beauty of Darjeeling and how it has been devastated by the agitation.
