Beijing is not ready to recognise the basic historical fact that Tibet was independent before its so-called liberation.

Two Tibetan students, Tensing and Sonam, studying at MS University in Vadodara, who had approached city police, seeking permission to hold a demonstration against the China president’s visit, were detained for questioning by crime branch sleuths. They were later shifted to Vadodara.

A team of SOG officials rushed to Vadodara and later some officebearers of Tibetan Students Association (TSA) were detained by the local police for questioning.

Senior police of ficials in Ahmedabad later said that 52 Tibetan students — 26 boys and 26 girls — have been detained in Vadodara as a precautionary step.

“There is a general intelligence input about a possible self-immolation bid. We are taking all precautions and keeping a close watch on the developments,” said a senior police official.

Tibetan students in the past have held demonstrations against China, demanding a free Tibet.

“There is apprehension that Tibetan students may organize a rally in the city. So, we questioned the office-bearers of TSA. The TSA has not applied for any permission so far but we are taking precautions,” said city police commissioner, E Radhakrishnan.
