Young Tibetan Biker's India Tour for Panchen Lama Ends in Delhi


New Delhi; June 14, 2016: A young Tibetan student from JSS Law College of Mysore University, Tselho Gyal reached Delhi on his Royal Enfield bike covering a distance of 3700 km starting from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Bylakuppe, Karnataka passing through Mysore, Bangalore, Chennai, Vijayawada, Nagpur, Jhansi, and Agra.

His mission was to bring to the notice of the international community and the Indian people about the disappearance of Panchen Lama Gedun Choekyi Nyima since May 17, 1995 and to demand his immediate release. "My first demand to the Chinese government is to provide clear evidence about the well being of the Panchen Lama. Second, he should be released as soon as possible. And the third that the Panchen Lama's right to life must be respected," says Tselho Gyal.

He visited Jantar Mantar, New Delhi to formally end his bike tour, from where he was escorted by the Indian police to submit memorandums to the Prime Minister of India, UN Office, EU Office, US and Chinese Embassy.

He will proceed to Dharamsala passing through Haridwar and Rishikesh in Uttarkhand state, and then to Shimla located in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
