    DHARAMSHALA, May 23: An alleged Chinese spy has been arrested by Indian police from the exile Tibetan headquarters of Dharamshala following a tip-off by Tibetan security agencies.

    The Department of Security of the Central Tibetan Administration in a release today said that the accused Penpa Tsering, 33, a former member of the People's Liberation Army, was hatching a “terror plot” to poison two Tibetan youths aimed at “spreading chaos and terror in the Tibetan community.”

    “A terror plot to poison two Tibetan youths – Tashi [email protected] Dhondup and Karma [email protected] by Chinese Security Agencies aimed at spreading chaos and terror in the Tibetan community was uncovered,” the release said.

    “This latest exposure goes well beyond Chinese government’s aggressive intelligence gathering on His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Central Tibetan Administration and other exile based organisations to undermine the exile community.”

    According to the DoS, the accused hails from Lhari region of Nagchu in central Tibet and confessed to Tibetan security officials that he was first recruited and then sent across to India in 2009 by Li Yuquan who was then working as Party Secretary of Political and Legal Committee; Head of Public Security Bureau of Nagchu Prefecture, ‘TAR’ and a member of the 9th National People’s Congress of TAR. Li has been since transferred to Chamdo Prefecture, TAR but holding the same portfolio as before.

    “Penpa Tsering is fully trained in intelligence tradecrafts and physical combat including weapon handling. He was in PLA from 1999 to 2002 and later worked in Public Security Bureau, Nagchu Prefecture prior to coming to India,” the release noted.

    “Li Yuquan has initially tasked Penpa Tsering to collect intelligence on alleged “terrorist” activities against China by Central Tibetan Administration and Tibetan NGOs based in exile. He was asked to report on health condition and schedules of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.”

    The accused had posed himself as a staff of the DoS and made contacts with numerous individuals to “collect specific intelligence on exile based Tibetan NGOs, important personalities, new comers from Tibet and vulnerabilities in Tibetan community; and reported these information to his handler on regular basis through phone, Internet based Weechat and QQ.”

    Penpa Tsering was later tasked to poison the two Tibetan youths – Tashi Gyaltsen and Karma Yeshi – both of whom had escaped to India in early 2010.

    “To execute this terror plot, Li summoned Penpa Tsering twice to Kathmandu, Nepal since 2012,” the DoS said. “Li along with other Chinese agents personally instructed him to eliminate the two youths by poisoning. Three different poisonous substances were first tested in front of his eyes on two puppies and a chicken and then handed to him.”

    Penpa Tsering is believed to have received more than Indian Rupees Eleven lakhs from Li Yuquan since May 2009 for providing intelligence reports and task of eliminating the above two youths.

    Following the revelations, the DoS appealed “all sensible and right thinking Tibetans to cooperate with us in further exposing evil designs of Chinese security agencies by providing credible and timely information whenever they come across of any such nature.”

    The local police chief later told reporters that they have arrested Penpa Tsering on suspicion.

    "We were keeping an eye on him after receiving a written complaint from Tibetan security agencies about his suspicious activity and on Wednesday evening, we arrested him," said superintendent of police (SP), Kangra, Balbir Thakur.

    It won't be wrong to say that Chi-Pak are made for each other. Chinis have reach the meanest level of humanity by attempting to kill innocent monks whose home they have illegally occupied. Chinis do not deseve to be called humans.

    As they run Tibetan govt. in exile, they have jurisdiction over all Tibetan camps all over India.
    Tibetan security agencies are mandated to provide security in those area and maintain law and order.

    What you guys have missed is that the spy himself may be a Tibetan as his name shows.

    Yusuf Sir, every community has black sheep among them.
    When there is still influx of Tibetans through Nepal into India, it is but obvious that there may be some indoctrinated among them.
    As, Tibetans have right of free movement inside India, there can be events of espionage by some among them.

    But, as we have not seen any kind of disorder created by them in the past,I would like to dismiss this event as a singularity and threat perception coming out this equivalent to any person who is sale-able.

    But, we cannot lower our guards.

    India and Tibetans in particular have to be more careful. Chinis are using Tibetans to spread fear,terror. They have to keep there flock together

    Hospitable India shall grant exiled Tibetans citizenship out of humanilitarian concerns and allow them to travel freely and worship their Ayotullah as much as possible. Anyway they've disowned China.

    No need to grant them citizenship, they are citizen of a country and surely will get back their country in future.
    They have many rights in India and these rights far exceeds that given by a country which occupies their home now.
    This goes even when they don't have citizenship.

    And for the ayotullah you are talking about is respectable to even Indians.

    I think you will take this post in right spirit.....thank you.

    Where does India stand on Tibet's freedom struggle? Will China go to war against India if Dalai Lama is not handed over to them?

    Or else Dalai Lama and his Tibetan followers can take asylum in other anti-China Countries such as Vietnam, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, France or even USA.

    See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinophobia

    His Holiness The Dalai Lama shall stay in India as long as he wants.
    The same is true for his followers.

    India has done no wrong in sheltering The Dalai Lama and his followers.
    Under International law it is no wrong to provide asylum to asylum seeker.

    for the war part, why has China not tried to punish India for not throwing out Dalai lama all these years?
    He is still in India.
    He is a free man and travels around the world.

    for India's stand on Tibetan freedom struggle, India accepts suzerainty of China over Tibet.
