Reacting to Nangpa-La pass shooting which resulted in the death of Kelsang Nortso, a 27 years old nun, and the injured 23 years old Kunsang Namgyal, the Standing Committee of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile strongly condemned the brutal act of the Chinese soldiers.

The Deputy Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, Dolma Gyari, in her letter to the High Commissioner of the United Nation Human Rights Council (UNHRC) expressed that the Standing Committee of the exile Tibetan Parliament was greatly saddened by this uncalled for incident.

The Deputy Speaker further stated that, "the Tibetans marching through the bitter Himalayan pass are mainly Buddhist monks/nuns/students seeking better education, pilgrims, asylum seekers and above all, people coming for a glimpse of His Holiness the Dalai Lama".

Fearing the fate of the Tibetans who were injured and others who could not cross over the Himalayas, the Standing Committee drew the attention of the Human Rights Council to this matter and stated that a mere condemnation of such brutal and inhuman act does not protect the basic human rights and requested for timely action.
