Tibetans in Kathmandu and abroad are upset with Nepal government authorities secretly cremating a monk who had self-immolated in Kathmandu on February 13.

The body of Drupchen Tsering, the 25-year-old monk, was cremated on Monday night under security at the cremation site of the sacred Hindu temple Pashupathinath in Kathmandu.

“There’s discontent because authorities failed to hand over the body to Tibetans so that the last rites could be performed as per their rituals,” said a source.
