A father-of-two who was arrested on 8 August was killed by his Chinese captors. Guldrak died in the detention centre where he was being held.
Police tried to disguise the death as suicide but 500 local Tibetans protested in front of the detention centre. Local police accepted responsibility for the death but there is no indication of a criminal investigation.
This is the second death in detention in 2013 that Free Tibet can confirm. Details of the first cannot be disclosed to protect sources.
Authorities in Tibet will not hesitate to use lethal force against the local population.
