Tibetans clash with Chinese soldiers, several injured

Dharamsala, April 13 - Tibetans in Machu County clashed with Chinese security forces on April 9, Voice of Tibet radio service reported.

The incident took place on the day of a monastic ritual dance which is held annually on the fifteenth day of the third Tibetan lunar month (Horda sumpai gharcham) at Serma monastery, Dolkar Kyap, director of Academy of Tibetan Culture, Norbulingka institute, told VOT.

“The ritual usually attracts Tibetans in large numbers from villages and monasteries in the region. The local authorities recommended more troops in the region for the day but Tibetan leaders and senior monks objected to the reinforcement giving their assurances that the event would run smoothly without any trouble,” Kyab said.

On Thursday however, the Chinese security forces harassed local Tibetans in the market and ransacked a billiards hall where they found a fox skin, according to Kyab. “The security forces then beat up the owner of the skin and his two companions who argued with them.”

The news of Chinese security forces beating up the Tibetans spread instantly in the locality sparking off an angry mob that clashed with about 100 Chinese soldiers.

“The Chinese soldiers hit batons at the Tibetans who retaliated by hurling stones,” he said, adding that several people on both sides were injured in the brawl. No arrest, however, has been reported.
