Dharamsala, April 29: Chinese authorities in Nagchu (Ch: Nagqu) County, Nagchu Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) have secretly detained three Tibetan Buddhist monks, according to Dharamsala-based Tibetan centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD).

The three detained monks, all belonging to Shapten Monastery, have been identified as Khensur Thupten Thapkhey,47, Geshe Tsultrim Gyaltsen, 34, and Tsundue, 30.

The centre said, to secretly detain the three monks, the Chinese official gave misleading information to other monks of the monastery.

Khensur Thapkhey, a former abbot of the Shapten Monastery, and Geshe Tsultrim Gyaltsen, a scripture master, were detained by Nagchu Public Security Bureau (PSB) officials on April 11, 2009, for unknown reasons, TCHRD said.

TCHRD said the Nagchu security personnel misled the monks of Shapten Monastery by explaining that the two monks had gone to Lhasa City to receive Geshe (Doctorate of philosophy) Degree Certificate from religious bureau.

“However, it proved to be a ruse,” the centre said, quoting sources as saying. It said that the Nagchu authorities actually straight away took them to a detention centre, where they were currently being detained.

Similarly, another monk Tsundue, 30, a head of the Shapten Monastery's Democratic Management Committee (DMC) was also misled by Chinese authorities that he had to attend a meeting, but was escorted to Nagchu PSB detention centre, TCHRD said.

The centre said it is yet to ascertain the precise reason for which the three monks were detained.

The parents and relatives of the detainees were trying to make contact with them in Nagchu PSB detention centre, the centre said, while expressing “serious concern" about their safety and well being.
