Dharamsala: Police have arrested a Tibetan, suspected to be a Chinese spy, from McLeodganj, the abode of Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, an official said here on Thursday.

The accused, Pema Tsering, was arrested on Wednesday following a tip-off from the Tibetan government-in-exile.

"We have been keeping tabs on his activities after receiving a complaint from Tibetan security agencies," Superintendent of Police Balbir Thakur told a news agency.

He said the accused reached India in 2009 via Nepal and had been living in Delhi before moving to Dharamsala a few days ago.

As per preliminary investigations, Tsering was a member of the People`s Liberation Army of China and had also served in the People`s Armed Police Force.

Police have recovered an Indian voter-identity card and Aadhar card from his possession. Both were issued from Delhi.
