Dharamsala (Jan 31): Dharamsala hotelier KP Bhardwaj and bank manager DK Dhar, arrested after recovery of unaccounted foreign and Indian currency worth nearly Rs 7 crore from the Karmapa monastery, have been sent in police remand by a local court at Una.
Inspector general of police PL Thakur told HimVani that both Bhardwaj and DK Dhar (manager of Corporation Bank at Ambala) were sent to police remand till February 5 by an Una court last evening.
He said Bhardwaj was arrested on Saturday as an unaccounted Rs 1 crore was seized from two of his men at Mehatpur in Una district on January 25. It was after the seizure of this Rs 1 crore that the Gyuto Tantric University and Monastery, where the Karmapa has been residing for the last few years with his followers, was raided and huge amounts of foreign and Indian currency recovered.
The charge against Dhar was that he had prepared a fake document and handed it over to Bhardwaj’s men for carrying Rs 1 crore from Delhi to Dharamsala.
