Dharamshala, Mar 15 (UNI) Two days after Himachal Pradesh Police arrested 100 monks from crossing the Kangra district border to mark the 49th anniversary of an uprising against Chinese rule, scores of Tibetans began a fresh march to Tibet today.

The trek by about 50 Buddhist monks and nuns of five top Tibetan NGOs based in the country, began early today from the area where 100 Tibetan marchers were arrested on Thursday morning.

The marchers had crossed the Kangra district border and entered Una district with the police keeping a strict vigil over their march.

A leader of the National Democratic Party of Tibet, refusing to identify himself, told UNI here that they would continue to march until they reach Tibet.

''If these marchers are arrested, more will take their place.'' Earlier, a Tibetan leader had asserted that they had contingency plans in place if the Indian Police prevented them from marching to Tibet.
