Gangtok, Aug 6 (PTI) The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to send three Chinese nationals, who had intruded into the country through Indo-Sino border in Sikkim, back to China, highly placed sources said today.
The Chinese nationals of Tibetan origin were arrested by the army from Katau area in north Sikkim nearly two months ago and interrogated by intelligence agencies.
The police and military authorities apparently did not find evidence of ulterior motives behind the infiltration and a report was forwarded to the MHA for a decision.
The decision to send them back was taken by the MHA recently and the report has reached the authorities in Sikkim, the sources told PTI here.
The three intruders were being held at an undisclosed destination close to the Sino-India border in north Sikkim for being sent back to their country at an opportune time, the sources told PTI here
