Lobsang Tsultrim | 洛桑次成

Lobsang Tsultrim, the 20-year-old monk [Tsering Woser reported him as 23], who self-immolated on March 16, marking a year of fiery protests, passed away in a Chinese hospital yesterday.

According to the exile base of Kirti monastery in Dharamshala, local Chinese authorities denied Lobsang Tsultrim’s family the right to perform his last rites and cremated him the same day.

“Only a portion of his ashes was handed over to the family,” Kirti monastery said in a release.

Lobsang Tsultrim | 洛桑次成 was the 31th(29thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.
