Indian authorities on Friday cleared Tibetan Buddhism's third most important leader in a probe into $1.35 million in cash discovered last month at his headquarters in northern India, a news report said.


Rajwant Sandhu, the top civil servant in Himachal Pradesh state, said the money found during a raid on the Karmapa's monastery had been donated by his followers, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.
