DHARAMSHALA, October 2: One of the three Tibetan hunger strikers, who were forcibly admitted to hospital following deterioration in their health last month, has been readmitted to hospital after complications in his health resurfaced.

Dhundup Lhadar, vice-president of Tibetan Youth Congress, the largest pro-independence group in exile, was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi on September 29, following complains of severe pain.

According to Tenzin Norsang, joint secretary, TYC, doctors at the hospital are examining Lhadar for possible formation of stone in his internal organs.

“Although Dhondup Lhadar’s condition is stable as of now, he is currently going through a lot of medical check ups,” Norsang said.

The lack of fluid intake and dehydration are usually linked to the formation of stones inside the human body.

The other two hunger strikers Penpa Tsering, organisational secretary and Jigme Sholpa, cultural secretary are “doing fine,” he added.

On September 22, Indian authorities forcibly removed the three hunger strikers from their protest site in New Delhi and took them to a hospital after all three of them showed major signs of deterioration in their health.

Doctors conducting official check had expressed particular fear over Lhadar’s health, who had lost 9kgs and was referred to immediate medical attention. Last year, he took part in a TYC hunger strike, going without food for 25 days and had since not fully recovered.

The three TYC central executives had begun their indefinite fast on September 3 in “solidarity with the self-immolators inside Tibet and to appeal for immediate international intervention” in the unfolding Tibet crisis.

The campaign had come under unusual pressure the very day it began when the hunger strikers were detained citing security reasons due to the presence of a visiting Chinese dignitary in the Indian capital. The three were released on September 6, following which they returned to Jantar Mantar to carry on their fast.

With the hunger strike, TYC appealed the EU, UN, governments and NGOs to immediately fulfil the promises made by them during earlier TYC hunger strikes through a multilateral approach and also demanded China grant immediate access to governments, international organisations and the media to travel in Tibet in order to understand the aspiration of Tibetans inside Tibet.

Since 2009, there have been 52 known cases of self-immolations inside Tibet demanding freedom and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile.
