Kathmandu, Jul 16 (PTI) Nepal government has beefed up security in its
northern border with Tibet, in order to check Free Tibet activities and
to control illegal trade.

Force (APF) personnel at Tatopani of Sindhupalchowk district near
Kathmandu and other North-west borders with Tibet as per the request
from Chinese government, the Nagarika Daily quoted Home Minister

on their way to India to meet their spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.
