Vienna, March 21: A Tibetan demonstrator was badly beaten by Chinese embassy officials on Friday after he climbed the embassy building and waved Tibetan National Flag.

Over 100 Tibetans and their supporters, backed by Austrian Green Party, held protest demonstration before the Chinese embassy in the Austrian capital Vienna against Chinese Government’s ongoing violent crackdown on peaceful Tibetan demonstrators in Tibet.

The peaceful but, noisy demonstrators called for Tibetan freedom in their homeland from more than five decades of repressive rule by Chinese Communist regime.

The protesters offered prayers for the victims of the ongoing Chinese crackdown inside Tibet and sang Tibetan national anthem outside the embassy.

In the middle of the protest, one of the Tibetan demonstrators, identified as Tsering Dhondup, went running towards the embassy building and climbed up to the second floor to wave Tibetan flag and hurriedly pulled down the Chinese flag and threw it down on the ground.

Other demonstrators also rushed towards the building as police struggled to stop them.

The lone demonstrator was, however, forcibly dragged in by 5-6 Chinese officials who suddenly emerged out of the balcony door where he was waving the Tibetan flag.

Another Tibetan helplessly tried to climb the building again, but was stopped by the Austrian police on guard.

Police wanted demonstrators to leave from the scene, but they furiously refused to leave unless the Tibetan held inside the Chinese embassy was released.

Tsering Dhondup was later released with the help of the police head deployed at the scene.

He reportedly told the fellow demonstrators that the Chinese officials beat him badly after they tight up “both his hands and legs”. He was later taken to hospital for treatment.

The demonstrators said they were surprised to learn from him that there was also a Tibetan man working in the embassy.
