China detains a Tibetan blogger in the Meruma town of Ngaba Tibetan Prefecture, Sichuan Province on December 27, 2014.

Soepa, 21, a student of literature at the Northwest University for Nationalities in Lanzhou, was arrested by a group of officers from the Ngaba County Stability Maintenance Office and Public Security Bureau (PSB).

Meu Kungyam, Native Meu and Former Secretary of Gu-Chu-Sum Political Prisoners Association based in Dharamsala, north India tells VOA's Phayul Lengthig that although the reasons for his arrest aren't clear, the active blogger may have been detained for writing articles and poems on issues sensitive for the Chinese government such as self-immolation.
