Two Tibetans were arrested from New Delhi's Press Club, where they were protesting against the Chinese President's visit to the city.
"Some more Tibetans were also arrested from different parts of the city - India Habitat Centre and Ambedkar Bhavan - for holding demonstrations against Hu. But the exact number of arrested people is not known yet," said Youdon Aukatsang, member of Tibetans' Tehor Welfare Society.
More than 50 Tibetans were arrested on Monday, after a 27-year-old man set himself on fire during a demonstration against Hu's India visit, said a protester.
The protesters were sent to Tihar Jail for law and order violation.
General Secretary of the Tibetan Youth Congress Tenzin Chokey said that the police have cordoned off Tibetan settlement areas to prevent the protesters from going out.
"The Tibetan youth hostel in west Delhi's Rohini area has been sealed since Monday night while some other areas like Pitampura and Majnu Ka Tila have been cordoned off," said Chokey.
However, senior Delhi Police officials said they have only taken precautionary measures to avoid any untoward incidents.
"Some Tibetans were nabbed as they were found to be involved in the protest," said a senior police official.
"No Tibetan has been arrested so far. Police teams have been deployed in areas where Tibetans reside to keep a watch on them in order to avoid any kind of untoward incident like Monday's self-immolation case," said Rajan Bhagat, Delhi Police spokesperson.
