Dharamsala, Jan. 27 – Pema Tsepak, one of the three Tibetan youths who protested in Dzogang county of the Chamdo prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region has died on January 23 after succumbing to his injuries sustained from beatings by Chinese authorities.

On January 20, the three Tibetans, identified as Thinley Ngodrub, 24, his brother Thargyal, 23, and Pema Tsepak, 24, all from Punda town in Tsawa Dzogang, had carried a white banner reading ‘Independence for Tibet,’ thrown paper fliers in the air, and shouted slogans, before getting arrested by the Chinese security forces. A Tibetan girl named Dechen Dolma, who was found in possession of Pema Tsepak’s mobile phone, was also detained but freed later on January 24.

According to Tsawa Community of Dharamsala, Pema was taken for treatment at Dzogang county hospital but he was so serious that he had to be taken to prefecture hospital in Chamdo where he succumbed to his injuries.

Pema had sustained serious injuries to his intestine and kidney, Yeshi Tsomo of the Tsawa Community told phayul.

In a separate incident on Jan. 22, three Tibetans participated in a protest demonstration and were detained immediately. They were identified as Thinlay Gyatso, 44, Norbu Tashi, 29, and Lobsang Lhamo, 27, all from Tsawa Dzogang.

Thinley Ngodrub and Thargyal are jailed in Chamdo (TAP) prison and Norbu Tashi in Dzogang county prison.

Thinlay Gyatso and Lobsang Lhamo were released on January 24.

A candle light vigil and prayer session will be held here later today to mourn Pema’s death by the Tsawa Community in conjunction with the Tibetan Women's Association, Gu-Chu-Sum Ex-political Prisoners Movement, and Students for a Free Tibet (India).

The exile Tibetan government says the violent crackdown on Tibetan protesters following the unrest in March left 219 Tibetans dead, 1294 injured, 5,600 arrested or detained and more than 1000 still missing.
