DHARAMSHALA, April 15: A Tibetan man today set himself on fire to protest against China’s occupation of Tibet, said Tawu Lobsang Jinpa, a Tibetan living in exile with close contacts in a region.

Thinley Namgyal, 32, set himself ablaze around 12 noon (local time) in Tawu County of Kardze region, in the traditional TIbetan province of Kham. Thinley succumbed to his burns. His body was taken to Gangthel monastery and was later handed over to his family.

Thinley lived with his father Dulho and mother Pelha in Khangsar township, Tawu County. He became the 131st Tibetan to self-immolate in Tibet protesting against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies since 2009.

Following Thinley's self immolation, Tibetans and supporters here took part in a candle light vigil to express solidarity with his protest and mourn his death.

The candle light vigil was jointly organized by regional chapters of Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetan Women’s Association and Students for a Free Tibet, India.
