Phayul[Friday, December 12, 2014 11:51]
DHARAMSHALA, December 12: The Chinese authorities in Driru County have killed a Tibetan village leader who was known by the locals as a man who is well respected and someone who has pioneered several social works in the field of youth education, promotion of religion and culture, unity and harmony. The incident took place on Dec. 9, 2014.

Bachen Gyalwa or Ngawang Monlam was a former monk of Gyashoe Pelkar monastery, was arrested along with several other Tibetans including Peka, Neymey, Droril and Tashi.

The arrestees were taken to Diru County detention center and there is no information about them as of now.

Local sources say that the Chinese have killed Gyachen because they wanted his removal from the post and even issued orders to remove him from the post which the Chinese want to be filled by a Chinese replacement.

The authorities warned the Tibetans against leaking the news of Gyachen’s death to the outside world failing which the authorities would take punitive measures against the Tibetans. The Tibetans were forced to sign and give thumb impressions on an agreement accepting to remain mute about the killing.

A Chinese regional party secretary has issued a 59 point rulebook issuing stern warning against the Tibetans who plot against the Chinese government. The Tibetans in Driru have urged the world community to send investigating teams to save them from the impending repression.

Meanwhile, 107 nuns of a nunnery in Phenbo, near Lhasa, in August this year. The nuns have distributed pamphlets seeking help in their hours of despair. “We have been forced to leave our quarters where we worship and study. We have nowhere to go. Please save us,” the nuns wrote.

On August 12, the Chinese authorities bulldozed the quarters of Shar Bhumpa Monastery in Phenbo. Several nuns have reportedly collapsed seeing the mowing down of their residences. A few nuns have also been reportedly missing.
