(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chen Jun, from Hunan Province, was about twenty-seven or twenty-eight years old. He was beaten to death by the Tilanqiao Prison staff in Shanghai City because he started practicing Falun Gong while he was serving his sentence.

When Chen Jun was serving his sentence at the Tilanqiao Prison, he was transferred to a team where all the Dafa practitioners were held. In August 2004, Chen Jun was chosen to monitor Dafa practitioner Du Ting. Chen Jun had always been quite friendly to Dafa practitioners and always respected Dafa practitioners. Through his further contact with Dafa practitioners and after he read Master's new articles, he started to practice Falun Dafa.

The police at the Tilanqiao Prison flew into a rage from shame after discovering that Chen Jun started practicing Falun Dafa. On January 18, 2006, they placed him in the confinement room of the No. 1 Team in the No. 2 Division, and started malicious physical torture and daily beatings. According to a witness, Chen Jun was punished with the "leather belt handcuff" [His hands were handcuffed at his waist, upper body kept straight, with hands and arms not allowed to move. The mouth was sealed with rubberized tape and he was beaten continuously]. It was also said that they transferred criminal inmates Cai and Qiu from the notorious Youth Experiment Team to beat Chen Jun in the confinement room.

After one week of continuous physical torture, Chen Jun's life was in danger. He was sent to the Shanghai Prison General Hospital. Not long after that, the prison sent Chen Jun, who was on his last breath, back to his old home in Hunan. A person who knew Mr. Chen said that Chen Jun passed away about a month after he arrived home.

The Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai City, the so-called "civilized prison," by deceiving the international community, brutally persecutes Dafa practitioners. Dafa practitioner Du Ting is still being subjected to the physical torture of forced-feeding, and his body is extremely weak. Practitioner Chao Hongru (a senior engineer) was once tortured until his body was mishappen. Practitioner Zhou Bin suffered impaired hearing and eyesight due to physical torture and his body was covered with wounds. We hope that more of the world's people will pay attention and help rescue Dafa practitioners in Shanghai Tilanqian Prison and many other prisons and labor camps in China.
