DHARAMSHALA,October 13: In confirmed reports coming out of Tibet, yet another Tibetan has set himself on fire in protest against China’s continued occupation of Tibet.

Tamdin Dorjee, 52, set himself on fire around 1:00 pm (local time) on October 13th Saturday in Tsoe, Kanlho region of north-eastern Tibet. Tamdin Dorjee passed away at the site of his protest.

Eye witnesses have told sources in exile that Tamdin Dorjee raised slogans for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and freedom in Tibet.

According to Dharamshala based Central Tibetan Administration, his body was later taken to his home, following which a prayer service was conducted by monks at Tsoe Monastery. Local Tibetans are visiting his home to pay their last respects.

Tamdin Dorjee is the grandfather of the 7th Gunthang Rinpoche, who is one of the most revered religious leaders in the region.

The Monastery has been sealed off and Chinese Security forces have moved into the area. Intense restrictions are in place.

Tsoe has already witnessed two self-immolations by Dolkar Tso and Sangay Gyatso. Both of them passed away in their fiery protests.

55 Tibetans have set themselves on fire since 2009 demanding the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile and freedom in Tibet.
