The Singapore police arrested and detained a Bhutanese citizen for suspected housebreakings at various eateries/restaurants in Singapore.
The suspect was arrested on 12 April.
Lobzang Nima, from Tseykakha village, Punakha, was a former student of Nima Higher Secondary School. He had left for Singapore in 2010 to apply for an Australia visa, which was denied to him. He then stayed on in Singapore and was working in restaurants.
The release date of his arrest is not known, and when contacted, the Cantonment Police Station in Singapore refused to comment on the issue.
