Policemen detain a Tibetan youth activist during a protest outside the Taj Palace hotel where Chinese President Xi Jinping is staying, in New Delhi on Friday.  

Scores of Tibetans staged a protest this morning outside the Hotel Taj Palace, where Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife are staying.

Protesters carrying placards that read “Freedom is my birth right”, “Freedom of Tibet, Security of India” raised anti—China slogans.

Some Tibetans also tried to enter the premises of the hotel, but police managed to prevent them from doing so.

“As the Tibetans refused to budge, scores of protesters have been detained by the police,” said a senior police officer.

Security has been tightened around the hotel.

A group of Tibetans had on Thursday staged a protest and clashed with police outside Hyderabad House, the venue for the bilateral talks between the Chinese President and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
