Himachal Pradesh police on Wednesday reviewed the security of Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and his official palace, besides establishments of the Tibetan government-in-exile, located at Mcleod Ganj.

The meeting was held following a fresh advisory of the National Investigation Agency about possible terrorist strikes in Tibetan-dominated areas and monasteries in the state, official sources said.

Confirming the development, Superintendent of Police, Kangra, Balbir Thakur, said some loopholes were found in the security of the spiritual leaders the Dalai Lama and the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who are residing here and these would be plugged soon.

"The security pickets around the Dalai Lama's palace and the Gyuto Tantric Monastic University, where the Karmapa resides, would be strengthened.

Even there is a plan to deploy sniffer dogs at both places," he said.

The boundary walls of both the places would be fortified and there is also a plan to utilise the services of sniffer dogs, Thakur added.
