Dharamsala: Police claimed to have arrested a suspected Chinese spy from McLeodganj here.
Pema Tsering of Tibetan origin was arrested last evening on the complaint of Tibetan government`s security agencies in Dharamsala, SP, Kangra, Balbir Thakur said.
"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," Thakur said.
Police have recovered an Indian voter ID card and Aadhar card from Tsering`s possession.
