Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Zhimei, from Shandong Province, was a freshman in the Chemistry Department of Tsinghua University.

One guard sat on the chair and ground the wooden chair leg into Liu Zhimeis foot. They also hit her with an object, leading to her being crippled for two months afterwards.
Liu Zhimei was transferred to Division 7 of the Beijing Detention Center. The guards blindfolded her and took her to a secret location during interrogation. They locked her into a two meter by one meter (6.6 by 3.3 ft.) room and tortured her there for two months. She was only 20 years old.
In November 2002, officials at the Haiding District Court in Beijing sentenced Liu Zhimei to twelve years in prison and transferred her to the Shandong Womens Prison, to be further persecuted.
