Tibetans- in-exile in Dharamsala disappointed by high court order against spiritual leader - ANI News



Dharamsala, July 10 (ANI): Tibetans living in exile in hill town of Dharamsala were left disappointed after a court on Thursday refused to drop charges against 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje in the 2011 foreign currency haul case. The 30-year old who is the current embodiment of Karmapa Lama, a sacred role in Tibetan Buddhism, was implicated by the Indian police in December 2011 following a seizure of $1.4 million from his monastery in Himachal Pradesh. However, the high court reopened the case and refused to drop charges against the Tibetan spiritual leader. Meanwhile, another Tibetan-in-exile, Lobsang Wangya expressed shock at the court's ruling. The Karmapa is close to the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled spiritual leader.
