TYC Women activists sat on Hunger Strike in Tihar Jail: Day 3

New Delhi - All the 36 TYC Women Activists were produced before the Special Executive Magistrate Court by the Chanakyapuri Police after their medical examinations at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. Four Women members (Dolkyi, Thinlay Palmo, Tenzin Gawa and Migmar Choekyi) were seriously injured after severe beatings and lathi Charge by the Indian Male Police constables during their peaceful protest at the Chinese Embassy on the 49th Anniversary of Tibetan Women's Uprising Day. Following their failure to pass through the medical examinations, the Magistrate released them on his personal bound.

The youngest protester Ven Thinlay Palmo (16), who was in a state of unconsciousness, is under observation in ICU Ward at Mahavir Hospital. The court magistrate paid a personal visit to Ven Palmo at the Hospital and declined to book her under any cases by reasoning out that she is minor and innocent. All the remaining 32 TYC Women activists were booked Under Section 107/151 by the Special Executive Magistrate Court at Parliament Police Station, New Delhi and sent to Tihar Jail.

Memorandum letters were sent to 20 different Nations through their foreign missions based in New Delhi to highlight the issue of Tibet and the deteriorating human rights condition inside Tibet under the Chinese alien rule. The memorandum letter to the Indian Prime Minister sought for political support from the Indian Government towards the "Return March to Tibet".

All the 32 protestors continued their hunger strike in Tihar Jail which entered day 3 and unanimously decided not to come out on bail. The Jail Superintendent made a personal visit to all the activists in their cell and appealed to terminate the hunger strike which is not allowed in Jail. Mrs. Nawang Tsomo's health condition was weakening but she requested on behalf of all the activists not to bail them out.

Lhamo started crying when she learned about how the Chinese regime has suppressed the peaceful demonstrators and the Marchers who were detained by the Himachal Police under the guidance of Central Government. She stated "We will continue our hunger strike to pay respect to all the Tibetan Women and martyrs who have sacrificed their life for the cause of Tibet and its Independence"

Mr. Tenzing Norsang and Mr. Kunchok Yangphel of Tibetan Youth Congress were invited by Times Nows and CNN Office for interview about the reasons behind the protest at the Chinese embassy.
