New Delhi, March 19: Indian people flooded the Teen Murti Marg road, adjoining the Chinese Embassy building in New Delhi, in solidarity with the Tibetan people against the brutal crackdown on the peaceful demonstrators in the streets of Lhasa, Tibet.
The protest was led by large numbers of members from three prominent Hindu organizations like Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, Hindu Rashtriya Sena and Shree Ram Sena. On their rally towards the Chinese Embassy, they were barricaded at Chanakyapuri Police station, which is barely a kilometer away from the embassy.
Then protesters set People Republic of China's flag on fire and tried to break the barricade in sheer anger against the authority’s denial to let them pass towards the embassy.

Later the protesting groups submitted collective memorandum to the Chinese Embassy, United Nation Office, President of India and Ministry of External Affairs expressing their solidarity with the people of Tibet. The memorandum demands Chinese leadership to stop using force and aggression “against the innocent people of Tibet”.Based on report filed by ITCO
