March 30, 2010, Mar 28, 2010

Police in Chamdo Prefecture of Tibet Autonomous Region took into custody on
and after Mar 11 four monks of the local Zigar monastery over burning of a
government vehicle in the night of Mar 10, the 51st anniversary of the
Tibetan National Uprising Day, reported Mar 26, citing an exile
Tibetan MP belonging to the region.

The report said Karma Palden, 24, was held with two other monks on Mar 11,
2010 and taken to the county police detention centre. While the two unnamed
monks were later released, a third monk, named Gelek, 20, was held.

Karma and Gelek were severely tortured and paraded on the streets as a way
to intimidate the local Tibetans, the report said.
