Dharamsala, September 10 - 43 Tibetans were arrested earlier today by the Nepalese police. The Tibetans were staging a protest demonstration in front of the Chinese Embassy's visa section to mark the sixth month of this year's uprising on March 10.

The Tibetans staged a street play depicting Chinese atrocities in Tibet and the sufferings of the Tibetan people. They also raised slogans against the Chinese government's harsh policies in Tibet, and called for peaceful solution of the Tibet issue. The Tibetans also prayed for Dalai Lama's long life.

Officers from Nepal's immigration office and Kathmandu's Chief District Office demanded Registration Certificate (RC), a permit issued by the Nepalese government for the Tibetans to reside in Nepal, from the Tibetans at the protest site. Nepal has earlier deported Tibetans without permit apparently under China's instructions.

The 72 Tibetans who were arrested yesterday are still in police custody. It is the first time since March that the Tibetans arrested for protesting were detained for more than 24 hours by Nepalese police. There is an apparent fear among the Tibetans that the Maoists-led new government will tighten its grip on the Tibetans in Nepal and curb protests against China.

The 43 Tibetans arrested today are held at two separate police stations.

Nepal has witnessed one of the strongest and most frequent protests by Tibetans despite the fact that no major NGOs were involved in the organization and leadership of the protests. The Tibetans in Nepal have formed 'Tibetan Volunteers Group' following the March uprising in Tibet, and have been initiating demonstrations and protests voluntarily.

Updated: 1725hrs (Indian Time) - 30 more Tibetans have been arrested today (11 September, 2008) for protesting at the Chinese Embassy's Visa section. The 115 Tibetans arrested earlier in the week are still in custody.
