Kalimpong, 17 May: The Tibetan community of Kalimpong today took out a candlelight march demanding the release of the 11th Panchen Lama who was abducted by Chinese authorities on 17 May, 1995 just three days after he was recognised as an reincarnate by His Holiness Dalai Lama. His whereabouts remain unknown to this day.
