Phayul[Thursday, April 18, 2013 17:58]
DHARAMSHALA, April 18: According to information received on Tibetan self-immolator, Phagmo Dhondup, has succumbed to his injuries after undergoing treatment in a hospital in Siling for over a month.

On 24 February, Dhondup (in his 20s) set himself on fire in the ancient Jhakhyung Monastery in Palung region of Tshoshar, Eastern Tibet. Monks of the monastery took him to a hospital.

Following his self-immolation protest, the local Chinese authorities immediately stepped up security and dispatched a large contingent of security personnel to the monastery.

Dhondup was a native of Tsaphuk town in Palung region. He is survived by father Shawo and a sibling.

Since April 2009, as many as 115 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in Tibet calling for freedom in Tibet and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile. Out of which 98 died in their fiery protests.
