On the night of April 23, 2003, three Falun Dafa practitioners were reported to the police while handing out flyers to clarify the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong in a village in Nuanchitang Town, Nanpiao District, Huludao City, Liaoning Province. Two practitioners were detained and taken to the Nuanchitang Police Station, and one practitioner escaped the situation with righteous thoughts. Later, the other two practitioners also escaped after they were taken to the police station (they remain homeless to evade illegal arrest). The policemen went to the home of one of them and arrested his wife and 11 year-old daughter. They illegally detained them for a night in the police station, then kept the wife in detention and freed the daughter.

The policemen started to arrest people without restraint in order to find the source of truth-clarifying materials. On April 29, the police barged in on a house in Anchangguan Village to arrest Dafa practitioners Ren Jiujiang and Gu Fengchun, a married couple. The same night, Nuanchitang police arrested Xu Tieying, who lived in Lianshan city, Gangtun town, and took him to the Nuanchitang police station. Xu Tieying is the husband of Dafa practitioner Gu Fengli (the sister of Gu Fengchun). Gu Fengli was forced to leave her home and travel from place to place in order to avoid further persecution.

On April 30, Xu Tieying was taken to the Gangtun Town Police Station. It is not known where Ren Jiujiang is being held. His wife Gu Fengchun was detained in the Nuanchitang Town Police Station.
