Sangyal Khar set himself on fire right in front of the Police Station Tuesday around 9 AM (local time).
A Tibetan source said that Khar's charred body was taken to Sangchu County by the Chinese police who refused to hand over the body to his family despite protests from the local Tibetans.
The situation in Amchok town remains tense as authorities cordoned off the area and put restrictions on local people's movement and communication lines.
Khar became the 134th Tibetan to immolate self, and 114th to succumb to the burns.
