Tibetans staged a protest in New Delhi on Sunday over the visit of Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to raise the Tibet issue with him.

The demonstration was held at North Delhi's Majnu Ka Tila area which is home to substantial Tibetan population.

The demonstrators raised anti-China slogans and carried placards urging Modi to raise the Tibet issue.

"There were around 100 protesters. They have dispersed on their own," said deputy commissioner of police (north) Sindhu Pillai.

Security has been beefed in Majnu Ka Tila and New Delhi's Chanakyapuri area which houses the Chinese embassy.

Additional commissioner of police (New Delhi) SBS Tyagi said that there was no such protest in the New Delhi district.
