Circumstances around the deaths of a Tibetan religious figure and his niece in Kardze who died in a fire remain unclear. Thubten Nyandak, 45, and his niece Atse, 23 died on April 6, 2012, in their residence at a monastery.

A Tibetan in the area quoted a monastery administrator as saying that Tulku Athub and his niece Atse died in an accidental fire, but said the local Tibetan community believes they may have self-immolated “for the cause of Tibet.” A Tibetan source told RFA: “On April 6, Tulku Athub told his family in a phone call that ‘I have lighted many butter lamps for the benefit of those who have set themselves on fire for the cause of Tibet.’ Soon afterward, the residence was seen ablaze, and the Tulku and his niece were both found dead.”

Atse | 阿泽 was the 38th(35thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009. She was the 6thfemale self-immolator.

阿泽,康达折多(今四川省甘孜藏族自治州康定县)塔公乡龙古一村人,色达五明佛学院尼师,朱古图登念扎的侄女。23岁。
2012年4月6日(藏历2月15日),尼师阿泽与朱古图登念扎在自家木屋为所有自焚藏人供灯祈福后,以身浴火,遗体呈打坐状。
中共军警赶到现场,定为意外火灾,禁止对外谈论此事,而寺管会为免于寺院和佛学院被关闭,只得认可此说法。迫于压力和恐惧,朱古图登念扎与阿尼阿泽的家人不得不接受当局现金1万元及几袋大米,对外三缄其口。因更多情況不詳,自由亚洲等媒体只是称“疑自焚死亡”,未能有明晰的报道,直到该年7月4日,有藏人在网络上发布二人生前照片,披露自焚详情,才证实他们的死亡并非因为“意外火灾”。
2013年3月27日,藏人行政中央终于确认朱古图登念扎和尼师阿泽为自焚牺牲。
