- Description of event
Tseta, 25, was detained for about seven months shortly after Tenzin Sherab, a 33-yr old Tibetan nomad, died of self-immolation protest in May 2013 in Chumarleb (Ch: Qumalai) County, Kyegu (Ch: Yushu) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in the Tibetan province of Kham.
Local county police accused Tseta of colluding with two of Sherab’s sisters Thubten Dolma and Jigkay in taking photos of the deceased’s body after it was handed over to the family members. Tseta had lost his phone during the crowded confusion surrounding the funeral rituals at Sherab’s home.
