BAJURA: Police arrested 20 Tibetan nationals, supporters of Dalai Lama, for illegally entering to Nepal on Sunday.

They were arrested at Bauli, near district headquarters for illegally trying to enter Delhi via Bajura-Kathmandu route, informed Birkha Bahadur Rawal, DSP at the district police office, Bajura.

According to the national law of Nepal, the Tibetans, who do not have proper legal papers, are not allowed to enter.

Police started chasing them after they were seen at Pandusen in the district on Saturday night. They had reached to the district after 17-day walk.

All the arrested are youths which include 15 boys and five girls. However, their identities are yet to be ascertained due to the language barrier. “We are unable to establish their identities as they can not speak Nepali Language,” said police.

The arrested will be sent to Kathmandu today for further proceedings, informed police.
