(TibetanReview.net, Nov10, 2018) – Further reports on the protest self-immolation that took place in Chinese ruled Tibet on Nov 4 suggest that the protester did not survive and that he was a 23 year-old man whose name has been spelled as Dobo as well as Dorbe. The reports confirm that the self-immolation took place in Ngawa (Chinese: Aba) County of Sichuan Province but do not say how and where exactly it happened.

The reports also do not know whether there was any police intervention and who has possession of the protester’s mortal remains given the fact that Chinese police routinely take custody of Tibetan self-immolators, dead or alive and ensure that families do not get to give the dead a decent, traditional burial.

The reports confirm that the protester had prayed shouts of long-life for the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, and wishes for his return to his homeland as he burned.

The reports also confirmed that Dobo belonged to the Jhakorma village-level division of the county’s Choeje-Ma Township, He was stated to be living in his uncle’s home after his parents passed away few years ago.

Dobo’s was the 41st known protest self-immolation in Ngawa since Feb 2009, with the first one also having taken place there. His was also the 154th protest-self-immolation by Tibetans in Tibet during that period.

The Central Tibetan Administration at Dharamshala, India, held a prayer service for Dobo on Nov 9, led by the Dalai Lama’s Namgyal Monastery and with the participation of its entire staff.
