The Himachal Pradesh High Court today granted bail to Karmapa's aide Rubgi Chosang and a Tibetan couple, arrested in the wake of seizure of huge amount of foreign currency from the spiritual leader's transit home in January this year.
However, while granting bail to them, Justice D D Sud of the high court directed all three of them to appear in the office of the Enforcement Directorate in Chandigarh on March 21 for investigation.
Rubgi Chosang, also known as Shakti Lama, an accountant at the Gyuto monastery, from where the seizures of foreign currency worth over Rs 7 crore were made, had been arrested on January 27 on suspicion that he was involved in some "illegal" land deal for the monastery.
Later, police had also arrested the Tibetan couple in New Delhi in connection with the seizure of Rs 1 crore from two people that was allegedly meant as part-payment by the Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje's trust for the said land deal.
The couple, Karma Thapa and his wife Rinzin, had been charged with arranging money for the monastery.
The Karmapa's office has been saying that all the money recovered from the monastery had been received in the form of donations from followers all over the world.
