India turns back Gnanasara Thera!

Bodu Bala Sena general secretary Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera returned home last night (26) after he was refused entry to India over a visa issue.

Reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror say the double-entry visa he had been given by the Indian high commission here has apparently expired.

He had recently been India and then gone to Nepal, and the issue surfaced after he tried to enter India again, to attend ‘Sanchi Mela’ Buddhist festival.
