(TibetanReview.net, Oct02’19) – Forty Tibetans, including 18 females, were taken into custody after they staged a protest near the Chinese embassy in New Delhi on the occasion of China’s 70th national day on Oct 1, according to several Indian news media reports.

The protest, carried out by activists of the Tibetan Youth Congress, started at around 10:30 AM at Kautilya Chowk.

“A total of 44 protestors, including 26 male and 18 female have been detained,” the PTI news agency Oct 1 quoted Eish Singhal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi), as saying.

The protesters carried placards with slogans such as “Stop Killing in Tibet, Xi Jinping: Stop occupation in Tibet”, reported the ANI news agency Oct 1.

Police made several efforts to disperse the crowd. But the protesters continued to raise anti-China slogans which led to their detention by the Delhi Police, the report added.

Police have generally released Tibetans detained for taking part in such protests later in the evening.

The Central Tibetan Administration at Dharmsala issued a statement for the occasion, accusing China of having turned entire Tibet into an Orwellian police state as it celebrated the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PC with great pomp and fanfare.

Besides, thousands of people gathered in the Belgian and European Union capital Brussels and other cities around the world to collectively protest the erosion of human rights under Beijing’s watch on the 70th anniversary day, reported rfa.org Oct 1.
