Sad news continues to come out of Tibet of the nature which has created a picture of extreme pain and suffering of the Tibetans under harsh Chinese rule for years. Recently, a Tibetan man is said to have been tortured over the Dalai Lama's image, reported on Jan. 31, 2014. The Chinese police are reported to have tortured a Tibetan man after he was detained earlier in January for being in possession of banned pictures and audio recordings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his mobile phone.

Radio Free Asia claims during a random police check on Tibetans’ mobile phones in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, Norgay from Dhingri in southwestern Tibet was detained. Teachings from the Dalai Lama along with audio clips and pictures of His Holiness the Dalai Lama were found in in Norgyay’s mobile handset, according to a source from Nepal. The Chinese police are said to have warned Norgyay to break all connections with outside contacts.

This could lead to serious legal consequences under Chinese law. In 2013 Ngawang Topden, a 20-year-old Thangka painting student, was sentenced to two years in prison for keeping images of self-immolation protests and the banned Tibetan national flag, along with other photos showing Chinese atrocities against Tibetans, in his mobile phones. So, it's just another tense day for Tibetans.
