DHARAMSHALA: Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay today appealed to the Tibetan community remain vigilant after India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) alerted the Himachal Pradesh police of possible terror attacks on Buddhist population and monasteries across the state. 

The NIA issued the security alert on Monday after busting an Indian Mujahideen module at Hubli in Karnataka recently, Hindustan Times reported. 

Sikyong Dr. Sangay said the Kashag has requested the Indian government to strengthen security of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He said the Tibetan administration remains grateful to the Indian government for providing special security for His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the last more than fifty years.

He appealed to the Tibetan community to remain alert, adding that Tibetans must maintain friendly relations with the local Indian community and foster religious harmony.
