DHARAMSHALA, May 27: A Tibetan woman from Chone County in Kanlho region, Gansu Province has reportedly died after setting herself on fire earlier today in protest against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies.

Sangye Tso, 36, a mother of two, set herself ablaze around 4AM (local time) in front of a building of Chinese Security personnel and armed forces near Tashi Choekhorling monastery.

Immediately after her self-immolation protest, Chinese security personnel took away her charred body but later returned the body to the family but deployed a large number of police in and around Tso’s home.

Yesterday, the family members of Tso got worried after they heard her message on WeChat instant messaging application. What she exactly said in her message is not yet known due to stepping up of checks on communication.

The Tibetan government in exile today held a prayer service in honour of the latest self immolators Tenzin Gyatso from Tawu County and Sangye Tso.

Tenzin Gyatso, 35, set himself on fire on May 21 in protest against massive deployment of Chinese security forces in Tawu County where Tibetans have been planning to celebrate the 80th birthday of the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama .
