"Trinly was arrested in April 2009 for protesting and distributing pamphlets, calling for ' Freedom in Tibet ' in Karze County with few other friends. He remained in Kandze Detention Center for seven months after his arrest," the report said.

Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) based in Dharamshala, India reported that during this period he was tortured and beaten severely that it not only caused him serious head injury but also psychological disturbances which he suffered from long after his release until his last day. His family took him to different hospitals for treatment but all in vain. Doctors told them that his head injury is severe and failed to treat him completely. Hence, he stayed home where his family looked after him. He passed away on 10th of this month at his home.

Around 25 years old, Trinlay was born in Biri Serkhar village, Karze County (Ch: Ganzi) to mother Rinchen Dolma and father Lhobum (late). He is one of the four children of the family.

"On 10 July 2011, in the evening around 4 o'clock local time, the Chinese authorities arrested three young Tibeta boys in the Karze County Market, eastern Tibet and the so called Karze County Public Security Bureau (PSB) police arrived immediately and severely beat the boys at the spot before arresting them all," said TCHRD report.

Three young men arrested by Chinese authorities in connection with political protests; Lobsang Phuntsok, Samphel and Lobsang Lhundup who shouted slogans and distributed pamphlets that contained the phrases 'Freedom in Tibet', 'Long Live His Holiness the Dalai Lama', 'Return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama' and 'May His Holiness the Dalai Lama and all Tibetans unite soon.'

All three boys are from Karze County, Lobsang Phuntsok is belongs to Dhargye Ringo Village, Samphel is from Lona Village, and Lobsang Lhundup is from Norzin Village. It is confirmed that Lobsang Phuntsok is 17 years old. They are all believed to be around same age group and were students of a famous school in Dhargye Ringo Village.

Currently, there is no news or information on the whereabouts and conditions of these three youths.

"TCHRD mourns the unfortunate loss of a fellow Tibetan. The Center is very much concerned about the well-being of the many other Tibetan political prisoners, their conditions and treatment at the hand of Chinese Authorities," said TCHRD in the statement.
