Nepal harasses Tibetans on Beijing's orders

The 'World Report 2013' released by Human Rights Watch mentions how Nepal government has become increasingly hostile to the nearly 20,000 Tibetan refugees residing in the country.

"The government increased restrictions on Tibetan refugees, under pressure from China," stated an HRW release. 

Nepal continued to deny Tibetans safe passage to India and also obstructed peaceful gatherings by them to celebrate holidays like Tibetan New Year and Dalai Lama's birthday.

The government also detained peaceful demonstrators in violation of orders from the country's Supreme Court, the report stated.
