Tibetan activists in Tamil Nadu who were allegedly staging a protest against Chinese President Xi Jinping were arrested. According to intel reports, members of Tibetan Youth Congress and Students for Free Tibet-India (SFT-India) were planning to stage a protest against President Jinping.

Senior police officials from the Villupuram police department have also confirmed the arrest of activist and writer Tenzin Tsundue, who’s been an active part of Tibet’s independence movement and was once even banned from leaving Dharamsala before the visit of the then Chinese President Hu Jintao to India in 2006.
