DHARAMSALA: A Chinese national was arrested in Mecleodganj, on Saturday where the headquarters of the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama are located, for moving without valid documents, police said.
 
Kangra Superintendent of Police Atul Fulzele said that the Chinese national had been identified as Lei-xun (spelt Lei Youchi), and was found moving in Mecleodganj when he was asked to show necessary documents. However, when he was unable to produce any, the police took him in custody and questioned him.
 
Fulzele said that Lei-Xun has been arrested under the the Foreigners Act.
 
Meanwhile, the 73-year-old Dalai Lama returned home on Saturday after a fortnight-long tour of European countries.
