Indian authorities clear Karmapa in probe

Feb. 11 (AP): Indian authorities have cleared the Karmapa in a probe into $1.35 million in cash discovered last month at his headquarters in northern India.

Rajwant Sandhu, the top civil servant in Himachal Pradesh state, said the money found had been donated by his followers.

The Karmapa had no links to the money since the affairs of his trust are managed by his followers, Sandhu said.

“The Karmapa is a revered religious leader of the Buddhists and the government has no intentions to interfere in religious affairs of the Buddhists,” Sandhu was quoted as saying.
