The local police arrested Ms. Jiang Lanying, an associate professor at Hunan Normal University, on December 21, 2005.

Ms. Jiang Lanying, in her 50s, is an academic teacher. On the evening of December 20, the police attempted to break into her house, but she held them back. The police then besieged her home. Officials from the local 610 Office phoned her and threatened her in an attempt to make her open the door. They claimed that they knew her situation, and they swore they would capture her even if they had to wait outside her house for a month. A dean from the Hunan Normal University called her as well. The dean lied to her, claiming that the school was very busy and needed her immediately, trying to trick her into opening the door.

On the second day of the siege, December 21, about 4 p.m., two practitioners went to visit her. More than an hour later, when the practitioners were leaving the house, seven or eight police officers jumped at the chance and forced their way in. The police searched all three practitioners and handcuffed Ms. Jiang.

At about 6 p.m., the three practitioners were sent to the Yuelu Branch of the Changsha City Public Security Bureau. That same night, the other two practitioners managed to arrive home safely. At the time when this article was written, Ms. Jiang Lanying was still being detained. Her situation is unknown.

Officials at the Hunan Normal University have been cooperating with the authorities in persecuting Falun Dafa students at the university. In June this year Mr. Yang Xianguo, an associate professor at the University, was persecuted and his leg was broken in the process.
