10 Tibetans were severely injured on August 12 as Chinese police opened fire on hundreds of Tibetans outside the local Chinese administrative office protesting against the arrest of Wangdak, head of Shukpa village who is popular in the locality for his honesty and brave confrontation with Chinese authorities.

The Chinese authorities have also denied medical treatment to Wangdak’s son Kunga Sherab and several others. The source also said the authorities have not allowed bullets to be removed from those who have been injured.
