I was a Uighur Language student at the time of the incident in Kashgar Teachers' College and as far as I know:

The "Sandal" was an underground student organization, in Kahsgar Teachers' College, whose intention was to advocate Uighur human rights. The college admistrators who study all Uighur student activities and report to the government if any of them inconsistent with the "policy". With the help of those admistrators, 27 students from 7 departments were detained in the year 2000. they were tortured and sentenced from two years to 16 years.
