Tibetans protest against Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to India

New Delhi: Tibetan student activists are protesting outside the Taj Hotel in Central Delhi and outside the Parliament Street Police Station on Monday against the visit of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to India. Protesters jumped a barricade and tried to break another barricade.

Meanwhile at the hotel, Free Tibet activists were not allowed towards the hotel, but one activist scaled the wall of a petrol pump which is adjacent to the hotel and threw a Free Tibet banner into the premises. Three activists have been detained.

This came even as a large number of personnel were deployed at the Chinese embassy and the hotel where the Premier is staying and traffic diversions were enforced in several places.
