Dorjee set himself on fire around 6:30 pm and walked towards the local government office in Cha township. He shouted slogans against the Chinese government policy on Tibet. It is believed that he died at the scene, and that authorities took away his body.
His body was scarcely visible as the flames around him were so fierce.
Many people on the street were reciting mantras and praying to Gyalwa Rinpoche with tears and grief in their eyes ( reported one of the witnesses).
Note: Drawings that are titled 'Remember' are for people who had carried out the protest before I started drawing for each person who self immolated, which was May 2012 ( For Dargye. For Dorje Tseten. For Rikyo and Tamdin Thar ).
