Nagchu - woman attempts suicide, 9 identified among several arrested
[Tuesday, September 10, 2013 11:01]
Dharamsala, September 10: A Tibetan woman in Tibet’s Nagchu County is currently receiving treatment in the emergency unit of a hospital after she tried to kill herself following “harassment” by Chinese authorities, Ngawang Tharpa, a Tibetan exile with contacts in the region said.

The woman, Dolma Yankyi, deliberately crashed her motorbike against a hard ground by over speeding it out of frustration with the Chinese authorities who had earlier promised to let go off the Tibetans who were allegedly involved in a brawl with security personnel stationed at the Shag Rongpo Ganden Dhargyeling monastery.

According to the source, the Chinese authorities had threatened that they would appoint a boy as the reincarnation of the Rongpo Choeje, the patron of the monastery, and that they would force the Tibetans to accept him. She had demanded that the authorities withdraw the threat of appointing reincarnation and release the arrested Tibetans.

Tharpa described Yankyi as being enraged over the threat from the authorities and the arrest of her husband despite the promise by the authorities.

The authorities have not allowed any Tibetans inside the hospital where Chinese officers are guarding her, said Tharpa, adding that her condition is currently not known. Authorities also warned the Tibetans against publicizing the incident.

Yankyi’s husband Lobsang Tsering, 27, is among several Tibetans rounded up by the Chinese authorities in the aftermath of the alleged brawl between Chinese security personnel and local Tibetans last month. The authorities have sent the two children of Yankyi and her husband to an orphanage, added Tharpa.

Tharpa said nine out of over fifty Tibetans arrested have been identified. They are Lobsang Tsering, 27; Dhungphuk, 26; Dagyal, 35; Karma, 31; Gyalhuk, 28; Gyalwa, 29; Sichoe, 39; Choedhar, 27; and Jampa, 21. All of them were from the villages around Tarchen area. “There are many others from other villages and townships but due to strict monitoring of information their details were not available,” he said.

The Chinese authorities had shut down the Shag Rongpo Ganden Dhargyeling monastery on July 30 and all religious activities of the monastery including the famous ‘Rongpo Gutor’ banned thereafter.

The authorities had earlier agreed that they would not arrest anyone involved in the brawl with the security personnel on guard at the monastery but later went ahead on a massive arrest drive rounding up at least fifty Tibetans whose current whereabouts are not known.

The closure of the monastery followed an incident that the Chinese authorities call 'the 2010 May 20 incident' which refers to the arrest and eventual sentencing of the monastery’s senior figure Lama Dawa to 7 years’ imprisonment for alleged links with the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama regarding the reincarnation of the Rongpo Choeje.

Deputy Party Secretary of TAR Wu Ying Jie and several other CCP leaders visited the Shag Rongpo Ganden Dhargyeling monastery last month. Local Tibetan leaders from various townships and villages and monks from the monastery’s administrative body were summoned to the local Chinese administrative premises for a twenty day “thought education” but were harassed regularly.
