Thinley lived with his father Dulho and mother Pelha in Khangsar township, Tawu County. He became the 131st Tibetan to self-immolate in Tibet protesting against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies since 2009.
Following Thinley's self immolation, Tibetans and supporters here took part in a candle light vigil to express solidarity with his protest and mourn his death.
The candle light vigil was jointly organized by regional chapters of Tibetan Youth Congress, Tibetan Women’s Association and Students for a Free Tibet, India.
