‘Man protests from atop building as Wen addresses scientists’
(The Hindu | April 10, 2005)

A Tibetan man demanding liberation of Tibet from China today climbed atop a building at the Indian Institute of Science here when Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, was addressing scientists on the ground floor.

Taking the securitymen by surprise, Ten Zin Tsundue, General Secretary of the "Friends of Tibet" emerged atop the building waving a "Tibetan flag" and threw pamphlets down with "Let there be peace in Tibet" written on them.

As the securitymen tried to grapple with the situation with the Chinese Premier addressing the scientists at a hall on the ground floor, Ten also yelled out, calling for "freeing Tibet from China".

The securitymen later overpowered the man and took him into custody.

The Chinese Premier is on a two-day visit to Bangalore.
