1 february 2012 001Dharamshala: Hundreds of Tibetan pilgrims who were earlier arrested by the Chinese police on their way to Tibet from Nepal have been forcibly taken away in train to a undisclosed location, reports coming from Tibet say.

The report says at around 10 am (Tibet time) 31 January Chinese security forces surrounded those Tibetans at the railway station in Tibet's capital Lhasa and then put them in a train bound for China.

Those Tibetan pilgrims had been recently arrested at numerous checkpoints en route to Tibet on their return journey from pilgrimage to Nepal and other places.

The report further says the arrested Tibetans would be interrogated whether they are planing any political activities after detaining them at an unknown location.

No further details are available about their current whereabouts and well being.
