Mungod, Karnataka, March 6 – Chinese authorities in Ngaba prefecture have arrested 4 Tibetans including 2 women with alleged links to “banned” writings and “anti-government” articles in 2 books by a fugitive Tibetan writer named Gendun Tsering who arrived in Dharamsala recently.

Gendun, a Tibetan writer and a monk of Rongtha monastery in Khyungchu County, Ngaba prefecture, said he had been in hiding since February 2010, evaded arrest and finally made his way to India last month.

Tsering Dhondup, 23, another monk of Rongtha monastery was arrested for allegedly assisting Gendun in publishing 2 books, “Migchu” (tears) authored by Gendun and “Sonmig” (live eye), a collection of articles written by Tibetan writers on situation inside Tibet and edited by Gendun.

A Tibetan writer named Tsering Tenzin was also arrested on Jan 3, 2011 from a internet cafe called Yangchenma in Xining for his article “jhelung throe ki nguboedh” (cry from the sandstorm) published in Sonmig. Tenzin is a native of Sherteng village in Zoege County in Ngaba prefecture, and a monk of Palyul monastery. Both the men are currently held at Barkham County detention centre.

The authorities have also arrested the Tibetan owner and 2 women employees of Pandita Printing Press where the books were allegedly printed. Pema Tso, 17, was arrested on February 26, 2010 and Yangchen Kyi, 30, was arrested on March 30, 2010. While Pema is held at Barkham County detention centre Yangchen is held at a detention centre in Nagchu County. The owner of the Printing Press however was released shortly after.


Names of the books, places and individuals are spelled as pronounced and translated as per the reporter's discretion and may not be accurate.
