The Tibetan government - a Regency of 5 who rule in the name of the Dalai Lama - treated the rebels very harshly. They killed many of the leaders and put out the eyes of the rest.
The caravan halted at a mountain pass. Lamas came upon it, allowed the pilgrims to proceed, then fell upon Tornay's band, killed Tornay and one of his followers. The rest fled back to the hospice. From an original band of 10 missionaries, Tornay was the fourth to die at the Lamas' hands for preaching a rival faith.
