Today a Tibetan women Self-immolated in Ngaba.
31 years old Kalkyi(Kelsang Kyi) from Yultso village in Dzamthang county self-immolated today around 3:30 pm (Tibet time).
Kalkyi set herself on fire near Zamthang Jonang Monastery in Dzamthang township in Golok Pema, Ngaba in Amdo region, eastern Tibet (Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province in China). According to the sources, local Tibetans protected her body from Chinese authorities and taken to the monastery to say the prayers.
She is married to Drupe and has four children; a young daughter- Bhumo Chung and three sons-Denam, Pochung, Sopo, all are under fifteen. She is the 110th Tibetan and 16th Tibetan women from Tibet to set on fire to protest against China’s repressive policies. The common call of all the self-immolators is return of His Holiness the xivth Dalai Lama to Tibet and freedom for Tibet.
This continuous increase of self-immolation cases clearly shows that Tibet has remained under lock down with a heavy military presence and Tibetans living under the constant threat of arbitrary detentions, disappearances, and the ruthless military control of Tibetan areas.
