Eight Taiwanese nationals, who were arrested here on June 13 for alleged illegal stay, were on Saturday remanded in 3-day judicial by a local court.
Eight suspected Chinese spies were arrested from Chauntra village in Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi district.
Posing as carpenters, the spies were living in a palatial house, worth atleast Rs 2 crore, for the past several years.
When Taiwanese security personnel detained a suspected spy for China at a top secret military base last month, they may have had a sense of deja vu.
The agents were recruited by Kuomintang party to spy on China in the 1980s.
Beijing claimed the three Chinese citizens, arrested near the Indo-Nepal border, were "tourists".
