(TibetanReview.net, Mar10, 2018) – Police in India’s capital New Delhi took into custody around 80 Tibetan activists after they staged a demonstration Mar 9 in front of the Chinese embassy. They were mostly students, all belonging to the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYH), which campaigns for regaining Tibet’s independence from Chinese occupation rule.

The demonstration was part of the TYC’s commemoration of the 59th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising which took place in Tibet’s capital Lhasa on Mar 10, 1959.

TYC’s Information Secretary Tsewang Dolma said the protest was held a day earlier as Mar 10, being Saturday, was a holiday for the Chinese embassy.

Police had strongly fortified the Chinese embassy and the demonstration lasted only a short period of time.

Police were stated to have agreed to release the activists later that night.
