Around 35 Tibetans arrested for protesting Hu's visit
PTI[Wednesday, November 22, 2006 00:45]
At least 35 Tibetan activists were today arrested, including four outside the high-security Hyderabad House where Prime Minister Manmohan Singh held talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, as they staged rallies and burnt effigies here to protest his visit.

Four young Tibetan activists were taken into custody outside the Hyderabad House when they made a sudden appearance there, taking a large number of police personnel deployed there by surprise.

Holding their 'national flag' and raising anti-China slogans, the activists of the Tibetan Youth Congress reached the venue on the India Gate circle. Security personnel swung into action immediately and caught hold of the activists and whisked them away in police vehicles.

Police also arrested around 30 Tibetans under preventive sections of the IPC from various parts of the capital. Six Tibetans were taken into preventive custody on the Kasturba Gandhi Marg while they were moving towards the Hyderabad House.

Hundreds of Tibetans along with Buddhist monks dressed in maroon and yellow robes, many of whom have come all the way from Dharamsala-- the seat of Tibetan government in exile-- took out a march to protest Hu's visit.

They began the march from Jantar Mantar, but were not allowed to proceed further.

The protestors had a minor scuffle with police as they were stopped from burning the Chinese President's effigy. The activists shouted slogans against China for its "occupation of Tibet", burnt the effigy of Hu, unfurled the Tibetan flag and sang their "national anthem".
