Dalai Lama
Mumbai, Jan 7: Terror threat to Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama is haunting the Mumbai police as they have received some intelligence inputs, a newspaper report stated.

According to intelligence inputs, Tashi Phuntsok, a Chinese national of Tibetan origin may enter into India to collect intelligence on the Tibetan administration as well as to cause harm to the spiritual leader.

"A good number of Chinese youth enter India on business visas, ostensibly for some clandestine activities. It's likely that they may try to visit certain areas prohibited for Chinese like Tibetan camps. The Dalai Lama visits Mumbai and other places in Maharashtra. The threat to him must not be underestimated. Loss of Chinese passport and recovery of unknown Chinese passport need to be reported promptly, so that the concerned agencies can question them. In this regard, the activities of the followers of 'Shugden cult' - an anti-Dalai Lama group - need to be kept under strict vigil," the report claimed.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai police have informed the Tibetan organisations about the terrorist threat. The special branch and the local police have received instructions from Mumbai Police to keep personnel updates of Dalai Lama's Mumbai tour.

"He often comes to Mumbai and even goes to slums and mixes with people. We will have to enhance security cover form him in Mumbai," said a police officer.
