A day after Tibetan activists tried to storm the Chinese embassy in New Delhi, heavy security was deployed to avoid any untoward incident on the 51st anniversary of Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule on Wednesday.

"Large number of security personnel have been deployed around the Chinese embassy in Chanakyapuri to deal with any situation keeping in mind the anniversary of Tibetan uprising," said Additional Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) S Dash.

Around 30 Tibetan activists, including women, were detained on Tuesday when they tried to storm the heavily guarded Chinese embassy as part of their protest.

The Dalai Lama fled into exile in 1959 and established his government-in-exile at McLeodganj, near Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh. It is not recognised by any country.
