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.
