They were among the four Tibetans who were arrested by Chinese official in Sog county, eastern Tibet on 1 October, the same day Chinese government held a large ceremony for the communist party's founding anniversary.

According to Mr Ngawang Tharpa, a Tibetan from Nagchu now living in exile, Gyaltsen and Nyima Wangdu have been sentenced by a Chinese court 2 or 3 days ago (Axact date unknown), their families were not allowed to contact them nor did they receive any information about them. The families have expressed concern for the health of the two prisoners.

The four that were arrested are from Sog county, eastern Tibet on 1, October 2009, the day China celebrated the 60th founding anniversary of the communist party.
