图旺嘉(中国官方写土玛杰),安多拉卜让(今甘肃省甘南藏族自治州夏河县)桑科乡牧民,23岁。
2012年10月26日晚7点多,图旺嘉在桑科乡汽车站自焚,高呼“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”、“释放十一世班禅喇嘛”、“西藏要自由”,当场牺牲。遗体被当地藏人送回家中。拉卜楞寺僧众连续数日会为他举行超度祈福法会。
31日凌晨,当地僧众和民众以上百辆车,护送他的遗体到拉卜楞寺附近,举行了隆重的火葬。
图旺嘉是入赘到桑科乡赛赤村的牧民,妻子名叫多吉卓玛,现年18岁;还有岳母,及两个幼小的孩子。他在自焚前一天,没有外出,也没有去干活,而是特别用心地照顾了两个孩子。
他的家境贫穷,只有四头牦牛、十几头羊,他自焚牺牲后,藏人们给他家捐的钱达到十几万元,但他的家人把钱都捐给了寺院和学校里的贫穷孩子,并说自己家里出了一个英雄,作为家人也要做英雄的事情,人们给帮助的钱也要拿出去帮助别人,两个孩子要靠自己的劳动养活。
新华网2013年2月27日报道56中称图旺嘉是土玛杰,称他是受到康(四川省甘孜州甘孜县)大金岭寺僧人呷绒达金、甘南僧人三木旦、扎西加木措、旦藏及旦贝杰布“策划、煽动”自焚的,目前尚不知判刑情况。
