Darlak County police arbitrarily detained eight Tibetans under the charges of “creating criminal organisation”, “picking quarrel and provoking trouble” and “extortion and blackmail” on 20 October.
A source with knowledge of the detention explained Tibet Watch that the allegation was put against them for collecting donations for religious offerings.
The county police also issued a notice on the same day on their social media account, urging local Tibetans to actively report on clues related to the group of detainees and other “criminal organisations”, adding that they will be “highly rewarded in accordance with its relevant regulation”, whilst warning others withholding such information secret with severe punishment.
The detainees are Gonnam (མགོན་རྣམ།), Gontse (མགོན་ཚེ།), Jigme Tenzin (འཇིགས་མེད་བསྟན་འཛིན།), Palden (དཔལ་ལྡན།), Lochoe (བློ་ཆོས།), Namgayl (རྣམ་རྒྱལ།), Nordue (ནོར་སྡེས།) and Kalsang (སྐལ་བཟང་།). They hail from Gyime Township (རྒྱུ་སྨད་གྲོང་རྡལ།) in Darlak County, Golog Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province.
