Days after a Tibetan lama died in prison in China, a Tibetan man on Monday found a unique way to demand justice for him by climbing onto an electricity pole outside the Chinese embassy in New Delhi.
The man, apparently in his twenties, climbed onto the pole with full mountain gear in front of the embassy in the national capital and hoisted a banner carrying the image of late Rinpoche and with 'Justice For Tulku Tenzin Delek' written over it. He was detained by the police soon after he climbed down.
The lama Tenzin Delek Rinpoche had died on July 13 in a Chinese prison 13 years into a sentence for what human rights groups say were false charges.

Tenzin Delek was sentenced to death in 2002 on charges of terror and incitement of sepratism after being arrested in the same year in relation to an explosion in Chengdu city on 3 April 2002 that injured three people.
He, however, maintained his innocence.
Earlier, on July 17 a Tibetan monk, who committed self-immolation more than a week ago in China, succumbed to his injuries, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) said on Friday.
Sonam Tobgyal, 27, committed self-immolation on July 9 in Yulshul Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture to press for the cause of Tibetan freedom, it said.

Tobgyal had left a will addressed to the political heads of minority nationalities. In the will, he had spoken about the Chinese government's repressive policies against minority nationalities.
"Political repression, cultural assimilation, economic marginalisation, social discrimination and environmental destruction in Tibet are the key issues in Tibet and, in fact, we do not have freedom of speech," the will said.
