Dharamsala, March 25 – In a fresh incident of protest in Kardze, two Tibetan nuns have been arrested, the Voice of Tibet radio service reported, citing a source in exile.

Tsetan Phuntsok, a monk in a Tibetan monastery in south India, told the radio service that the two nuns were Yulshey, aged 33 and Tsetan Lhamo, aged 28.

According to Phuntsok, the nuns who carried a bag containing political pamphlets, shouted slogans calling for the return of the Dalai Lama and human rights for Tibetans.

The nuns, who belonged to Lama Ladrakrak monastery in Kardze, were severely beaten before being arrested, Phunstok said on phone.

The nuns are reportedly held at a new detention centre in Kardze.

The family members of the two nuns were accused of plotting against the Chinese government and joining hands with “Dalai Lama’s separatists groups”.

Chinese officials arrived this morning in two vehicles at the homes of the two nuns, said Phuntsok, adding that the family members were summoned to the local government office this morning.
