Security forces take away hundreds of Tibetans from Lhasa to
unknown location

Hundreds of Tibetan pilgrims who were earlier arrested by the
Chinese police on their way to Tibet from Nepal have been forcibly
taken away in train to a undisclosed location, reports coming from
Tibet say.

The report says at around 10 am (Tibet time) 31 January Chinese
security forces surrounded those Tibetans at the railway station in
Tibet’s capital Lhasa and then put them in a train bound for China.

Those Tibetan pilgrims had been recently arrested at numerous
checkpoints en route to Tibet on their return journey from
pilgrimage to Nepal and other places.

The report further says the arrested Tibetans would be interrogated
whether they are planing any political activities after detaining
them at an unknown location.

No further details are available about their current whereabouts
and well being.
