12 october 2011 001Dharamshala: The Central Tibetan Administration reported yesterday on Tibet.net that popular young Tibetan singer Choegon - also known as "Little Kunga" after a famous Tibetan singer - has been arrested by Chinese police. The arrest is suspected to have occurred on 25 September 2011.

Choegon, 19, a popular singer amongst Tibetans, was invited to a music concert in Tibet's capital, Lhasa. During the journey to Lhasa, Choegon is reported to have been arrested by Chinese police.

Choegon, from Jomda county in East Tibet, is a famous figure in the Tibetan music scene. The reasons for his arrest remain unclear although it is thought that Chinese authorities may believe Choegon to be pushing a pro-Tibetan political agenda through his music.

Choegon's relatives has so far been unable to locate him. His whereabouts remain unknown.
