Four monks of Lhadong monastery in Nubling village, Gemar Township, Dingri County, Tibet were reportedly arrested.
During a yearly prayer session in Nubling village, five policemen of Dingri County have come there and arrested four monks; Sonam, Kalsang tsering, Nyima and Phuntsok on Trumped-up charge of conducting prayer services for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It has been three months since their arrest, yet their families are left without knowing where exactly they have been taken and other detailed information.
According to a reliable source of Tibet Times, Lhadong monastery has only 14 monk residents. Following the arrest of four monks, the Chinese authorities have appointed two Party officials there for a regular inspection and still the monastery is under Chinese watch.
Following the arrest of monks, the Chinese policemen searched the resident rooms of the monastery, and also reportedly summoned the people and leader of Nubling village to be interrogated and detained.
Additionally, they have forced people and leaders to write a pledge that in future they will not recite any prayer of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the monastery and any other public place.
