Dharamsala, Sept 19 (ANI): A young Tibetan boy, who has sought refuge in India, has recalled the atrocities of the Chinese authorities.

Jamyang, a sixteen-year old related his first hand experience after his arrival at Dharamsala. Earlier, Jamyang arrived in the Tibetan Reception Centre in Mcleodganj near Dharamsala on September 2.

He remembered the violent episodes that took place in the neighbourhood of his home, located at a fair distance from Lhasa.

"My area is quite far from Lhasa but still many Chinese troops and Chinese authorities just come to our place. When we were protesting last year, they just hit us on our heads with iron rods," Jamyang said.

He further revealed that he came by a bus, used by the Chinese authorities, as a stowaway without their knowledge.

He mentioned that his other motive to come over here was to get a better education and also to have an audience of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetans. (ANI)
