The letter explained his three year sentence for weapon possession. Details of the weapons are unknown. Adha's family was granted permission to visit him in the Litang County prison, where he explained to his family that he possessed no weapons but under extreme torture he forcibly admitted and signed to charges of weapon possession.

His current health is under serious condition due to torture and poor living conditions.
