Tenzin | 丹增

October 25: Two Tibetans in their twenties set fire to themselves in a double self-immolation near a government building in Nagchu (Chinese: Naqu), Tibet Autonomous Region, on Thursday, October 25. Some Tibetan sources reported that the Tibetans were cousins.

The London-based group Free Tibet said cousins Tsepo, 20, and Tenzin, 25, called for independence for Tibet as they set themselves ablaze Thursday in front of a government building in their village in Biru county north of Lhasa, Tibet’s main city.

Tsepo reportedly died and Tenzin’s condition was unknown after he was taken away by authorities, Free Tibet said.

Tenzin | 丹增 was the 66th(63thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

丹增,康纳秀(今西藏自治区那曲地区比如县)白嘎乡人,25岁。
2012年10月25日下午4点左右,丹增与表兄弟泽博一起,在白嘎乡唐巴村第二大队学校门口自焚,呼喊“西藏独立”、“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”和“希望境内外藏人像兄弟一样团结一致”, 泽博当场牺牲,丹增被军警带走,从此下落不明。
丹增曾于2008年流亡印度,就读于达兰萨拉附近的西藏儿童村苏加学校,半年后因身体不适应返回家乡,被中共边防军抓捕,在日喀则遭拘留近七个月,后被押送比如县,当地公安要求交纳罚款5000元人民币,方才获释。
他是白嘎乡唐巴村牧民,也做小生意。父亲名叫尼玛,已去世,母亲名叫鲁格。
两人自焚后,当地局势陷入紧张中,军警密布,通讯被封锁,直到第二天很晚自焚消息才传出。

遗言:

“西藏独立”、“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”和“希望境内外藏人像兄弟一样团结一致”
