Dharamsala: In February 2012, Chinese police officials arrested the performing artist Adha for accusations of weapon possession. Atruk Tseten, a member of the Assembly of Tibetan People's Deputies in Tibet's India-based exile government, confirmed his arrest.

Litang County police officials explained to Adha's family that his arrest was summoned by higher authorities in China.

On April 29, 2012, Adha's family received an official letter from the Intermediate Court of Litang County in Ganzi Prefecture to confirm the arrest. 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.
