Two Tibetan school girls severely beaten, denied treatment

Two Tibetan girls, both in their teens, are being described in serious condition after they were severely beaten and arrested by Chinese security personnel for carrying out anti-China protests in eastern Tibet.

Talking to phayul.com, Lobsang Dhondup, a monk from Sera Je Tehor Khamtsen in south India said that the two girls, Tashi Palmo, 16, and Pema Yangzom, 19, were from Kardze region’s Norzin village and studied at the Kardze Middle School.

“On July 12 at around 4 o’clock in the evening, Tashi Palmo and Pema Yangzom carried out a peaceful protest in Kardze town calling for Tibet’s independence and return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama”, Dhondup said.

“Eyewitnesses confirm that both the girls were mercilessly beaten by Chinese security personnel before they were arrested”, Dhondup added.

Both the girls suffered serious injuries from the beatings but have been denied medical treatment.

“The girls are in critical condition but Chinese authorities have denied any medical attention to the girls. We are worried for their lives”, Dhondup told phayul.com.

The protest follows a series of anti-China demonstrations that has rocked eastern Tibet, especially Kardze, in the last six weeks.

These powerful expressions of Tibetans’ desire for ‘independence’ and ‘the Dalai Lama’s return’ comes at a time when China is holding grand official celebrations to commemorate 60 years of what it calls the liberation of Tibet.
