Tibetans chart Zhu's visit with protests
January 16, Wednesday: Chinese Premier Zhu Ronji's visit to India was well-charted out by the Tibetan refugees with widespread protests. While the Indian law enforcement has been a little more lenient than during Li Peng's visit last year, there have been reports of Tibetans being being rounded up by police.
Around 200 protesters from the Tibetan Women's Association were held in Majnuka Tilla, Delhi, by Indian police as they were on their way to protest against Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji's presence.
According to the India-Tibetan Friendship Society, 70 Tibetan students are imprisoned in Kamala Market Police Station, 27 in Pahar Ganj and R.K.Puram Police Station, and 22 in Parliament Street Police Station. They were all held for peacefully protesting against Zhu Rongji's visit.
Once again hundreds of Tibetans in Mumbai were caught by police as they peacefully protested near the Prince of Wales Museum and Jehangir Art Gallery this morning at 10 o'clock this morning, where Zhu paid a visit. Alongside, another 200 Tibetans continue their 24 hours hunger strike until the Chinese delegation leaves Mumbai.
