Kathmandu: Over hundred Tibetan exiles,
including 52 women, were detained here after they entered the
country from India without valid travel documents, police said
today.

The 114 Tibetans came from India yesterday via the land
route, in four passenger buses, according to the police.
They were detained immediately after entering the
capital.

After preliminary investigation, they will be handed over
to the Immigration Department for necessary action, the
Kathmandu Metropolitan Police Circle said.

Nepal government has time and again expressed its
commitment not to allow any activity directed against its
northern neighbour, China.

The Maoist led coalition government has also reiterated
its one-China policy and intensified crackdown against
Tibetans.

Nepal is home to more than 20,000 Tibetan exiles.
