Dharamsala, Jan. 9 � According to an unconfirmed information received by phayul, Chinese security forces arrested a Tibetan woman named Kunchok Dolma, 31, from Kudor (spelling unconfirmed) village in Kardze on December 29, 2008.
 
Kunchok was born to Tsewang Gonpo and Lhamo Yangkyi in 1978.
 
Kunchok had gone to the local market to buy a coat with 200 Yuan that her brother gave her the day she was arrested, a source said.
 
“She went to Dontuk Monastery where she offered prayers with a Tibetan white scarf and 100 Yuan. She then headed towards Kardze County, and spread prayers on leaflets. She also wrote ‘Free Tibet’ and “long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama” in Tibetan on the leaflets before scattering it around,” the source said.
 
Her fellow villagers told phayul through friends residing abroad that she was on the streets about an hour spreading her message before being arrested by some twenty soldiers who had picked up her leaflets.
