Dharamsala, Mar 28 : A group of six nuns who reached India on Thursday after fleeing from Tibet considers Dharamsala a safe haven.

These nuns found solace in Dharamsala, which is now a home to thousands of Tibetan exiles.

Kelsang Wangmo, a nun who fled to India, claimed that monks and nuns in Tibet are not allowed to enter monasteries. Accusing the Chinese authorities of committing atrocities on Tibetan people, she added that many live in a state of house arrest and are deprived of basic amenities.

Wangmo said that she heard from Tibetans who are in Tibet that those who protest, most of them are arrested by Chinese and even those who don't protest, the Chinese don't allow to go them to outside of their homes.

Following the unrest in Tibet for over two weeks and ahead of the Beijing Olympics, the reports of atrocities by the Chinese have sparked off international concern accompanied by even threats of possible boycott of the games.
