(TibetanReview.net, Sep19, 2015) – At least eight Tibetans were held by Chinese police over Sep 10-11 in Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) County of Sichuan Province for different known or unknown reasons in three separate incidents, said Dharamshala-based Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy Sep 18 and few other reports.

The centre said that on Sep 10 afternoon, Chinese police took away two Tibetan youths after they staged a protest on the main market of Ngaba County-town. The reports said the identity of the two youths remained to be ascertained. They added that other Tibetans present at the protest site joined the duo, although it was not clear whether any among them was arrested.

The reports said a 64-year-old woman named Ghuemo was also taken away by Chinese police, although they did not explain why. They said the woman was a daily wager employed to clean the streets of the county-town. They added that the woman, wife of one Mr Namkha Kyab, was a resident of nomadic camp No 2 in the county’s Rong Kharsar Township.

The reports also said that on Sep 11, five monks of the county-town’s Kirti Monastery were detained and severely beaten by Chinese police after they were apparently seen walking beyond the boundary set by the monastery during the monks’ ongoing summer retreat. While four were released after two or three days, the fifth, named as Lobsang Samten, 22, continued to remain in detention. It was not clear why the Chinese police punished those Tibetans thus even though being in apparent breach of that monastic rule was not a violation of any Chinese law. Lobsang Samten is said to belong to the same village as the 64-year-old Ghuemo.
