A group of Tibetan youths studying at the University of Delhi were arrested by the Delhi police while protesting in front of the Chinese Embassy during the eve of International Human Rights Day in New Delhi on December 9, 2013.

11 students including 4 girls were taken to the Chanakyapuri police station after their arrest.

The students were protesting against China's continuous occupation and oppression, and systematic violation of human rights inside Tibet.

"We are here with three demands, first we earnestly demand Chinese government to surrender all the criminals Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao and others to the Spanish court for their crime of violation of human rights in Tibet. Secondly, we demand China to end the repressive occupation of Tibet and thirdly to stop its current repression in Driru forcing Tibetans to raise Chinese flag over their houses," says Palden Sonam, the former President of Rohini Tibetan Youth Congress in Delhi, who is currently doing MA course at the University of Delhi.
