The protesters, carrying Tibetan flags, staged demonstrations outside the Chinese embassy. The embassy situated in New Delhi's Chanakyapuri diplomatic enclave saw protestors gather in large numbers.

"We demand our freedom, and that is what we are protesting for," said one of the demonstrators.

Police detained a few of the Tibetans as they tried to break the barricades and violate norms.
