Tibet students protest near US consulate


CHENNAI (TOF): Chennai city police were on their toes on Wednesday afternoon after a group of Tibetan students blocked the arterial road on Anna Salai close to the US Consulate office. The arrested protestors were released in the night after being booked for unlawful assembly.

The students raised slogans demanding freedom of Tibet from China, and the return of Dalai Lama to Tibet. On learning about the sudden gathering of students, police teams rushed to the place and prevented them from moving towards the US consulate office. The students were blocked on the opposite side of the US Consulate office near Rani Seethai Hall.

Tibetan student Rinzin Dorjee, a third year BA student of Madras Christian College, said, “Nearly 64 Tibet youths have self-immolated and died since 2009, for a free Tibet. The United Nations Human Rights Commission should visit Tibet and submit a white report.”

The protest slowed down traffic on Anna Salai for about half an hour from 2.30pm.
