Reports Of Assassination Bid On Dalai Lama A 'Stunt': China

The Dalai Lama has been living in Dharamshala since the late 1950s.

Beijing:  India is "framing" China by claiming that several Chinese spies were sent out to assassinate the Dalai Lama, a report in state-run Global Times said today.

Beijing has termed the claims as a 'stunt' by the Tibetan spiritual leader to attract international attention.

Claims of Chinese assassination attempts against the Dalai Lama have been denied by official Tibetan authorities, which claimed that this is a stunt set up by the Dalai Lama to attract international attention, a report in state-run Global Times' website said.

China Tibet Online - tibet.cn - the official website of the Tibet Autonomous Region said in a report that police in India are "framing" China by deploying additional manpower to safeguard the Dalai Lama in McLeodganj in Dharamshala.

The report quoted an Indian media report which said security had been beefed up towards end of 2015 "in view of the threat perception to his life" after arrests of several "Chinese spies".

Claims that China is sending spies to assassinate the Dalai Lama are "groundless", the report on tibet.cn said.

It also said that Dalai Lama is struggling to attract international attention and cover up his internal and external troubles by these stunts.

This is not the first time the Dalai Lama and his supporters have claimed that he faces threats from China, the Global Times report said.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hong Lei rejected the Dalai Lama's claim that China hired "well-trained agents, especially female agents" to assassinate him in May, 2012.

Hong claimed that the Dalai Lama always spreads false information.

The Dalai Lama has been living in Dharamshala since the late 1950s when he and a group of Tibetans fled to India after the Chinese invaded Tibet.
