(TibetanReview.net, Jan04, 2015) – Chinese police in Dzamthang (Chinese: Rangtang) County of Ngaba (Aba) Prefecture, Sichuan Province, have on Dec 30 attacked and severely beaten four members of a Tibetan village family after they and many others refused to sell their land for building police barracks and other structures, reported Radio Free Asia (Washington) Jan 2. All four were seriously injured, including one critically, the report added.

Citing a local source speaking on condition of anonymity, the report named the four as Kyi, Samlha, Ratna Dargye, and Lukyi, with Samlha being the one critically injured.

The four had joined other poor families to protest against moves led by the county’s deputy-governor Tsering Namgyal to force them to sell their land, their main source of livelihood, for police barracks and other projects.

No further details are available about the incident, including the current status of the poor farmers’ land and the condition and situation of the injured four people.
