Phayul[Saturday, September 12, 2015 11:55]
DHARAMSHALA, September 12: Two Tibetan monks and a some lay Tibetans have been arrested in separate incidents of solo protests in the restive Ngaba town on Thursday making it four solo protests against Chinese rule in just five days.

Adrak, a 20 year old monk of Kirti Monastery, shouted slogans such as "freedom in Tibet" and "long live Dalai Lama" as he walked the streets of Ngaba town before being subdued by police on patrol, according to Kanyag Tsering, a monk of Kirti monastery based here.

Policemen in full riot gear beat up Adrak in their attempt to stop him from shouting more slogans. Tibetan lay people present around also joined his protest and shouted slogans, said Kanyag. However, they were beaten up by the policemen in uniform and plain clothes and arrested. Due to severe restrictions on communication lines the details of the laypeople who were arrested could not be attained as of now.

Adrak's family comprised of his father Zampa, mother Rikho and 9 siblings of which he is the youngest. Adrak's cousin Lobsang Tsuiltrim, also a monk of Kirti Monastery, was sentenced to 11 years' imprisonment for alleged links to self immolation protests in 2012. He is a native of Choejema township's Soruma division in Ngaba County.

Another monk of the same monastery was arrested for another incident of solo protest on the same day. Around 6PM (local time), Lobsang, a 22 year old monk of Kirti Monastery, walked the streets of Ngaba town while shouting slogans. He shouted, "freedom in Tibet, long life Dalai Lama". However, he was immediately arrested by the police patrolling the streets. Lobsang is the fourth son of 5 siblings born to father Tsega and mother Nekyi of Chuklay Gapma town in Ngaba County.

With 4 solo protests in just five days in Ngaba, the Chinese government authorities have stepped up the security and surveillance of the area making it hard for sources to confirm or verify information.

Kanyag Tsering also said that reports of protests by some laypeople on Thursday were also coming in but could not be confirmed.
