DHARAMSHALA, May 15: Days after the three members of the exile family on their March to Tibet were stopped and returned back to India by Nepali border police, Tsetan Dorjee, one of the marchers has successfully entered Nepal.

He had reportedly gone missing a couple of days back.

According to reports, Drojee is currently in Nepal and has been carrying on with the march from inside Nepalese territory.

“This morning at around 6 am, Tsetan Dorjee called and told his mother that he resumed the march from Lumbini and will try to reach Kathmandu en route to Tibet,” Mogru Tenpa, a Tibetan member of parliament, who is in the Indian border city of Gorakhpur along with Dorjee’s mother and sister, told reporters.

Lumbini, considered holy by Buddhists the world over as Lord Buddha’s birthplace is around 250 kms from Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu.

Details are not yet clear on how Dorje managed to slip past Nepali border posts and reach Lumbini, around 130 kms from Gorakhpur.

The three members of the exile family were forcibly returned back to India after being detained, and beaten by Nepali border police last Thursday.

Tsetan Dorjee along with his mother Dhumpo Kyi and sister Lhamo Kyi began their March to Tibet from Dharamshala, the seat of Central Tibetan Administration on March 10, coinciding with the 53rd anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising Day.

After being stopped at the Nepali border post, Dorjee had said the march was only on hold and will resume shortly.

“I won’t stop this struggle; it will end only if I die,” Dorjee had told reporters before going missing. “I have no word to add regarding my mother and sister. Ask them.”

Dhum Po Kyi, who had to receive medical attention after being beaten up at the border post had said that she will “never back off.”

“I will carry on even if I have to crawl,” Dhum Po Kyi had said.
