On the other hand, they collected evidence and went to harass those practitioners who had contact with Mr. Liu Renge. It is now known that there were four to five practitioners who were harassed by the police, including some who were sentenced to forced labor camps.

They are between the ages of 25 and 40 years old. Since they protested against the persecution, and they did not co-operate with the evil (they would not tell them their real names and refused to wear the prison uniforms). Guard Song Bin instigated a prisoner named Dong Shuang in Cell 214 to strip off these four practitioners' clothes and force the practitioners to stand at the door and the window of the cell facing outside, so that male prisoners who were walking around the hallway and the court yard could see them.
The practitioners were tortured in such a cruel way but they still refused to co-operate with the evil's request. As a result, Dong Shuang instigated the other prisoners to beat the practitioners ceaselessly until the practitioners were bruised and lacerated. Ms. Li Hongzhong and Ms. Yu Zhen were beaten until they lost consciousness and were sent to the hospital for rescue. Later, those villains forced the practitioners to use toilet water to brush their teeth and drink. The prisoner guard named Song Bin instigated Dong Shuang from the No. 214 Cell and Feng Yajie from Cell 215 to control the practitioners' money, and spend the money freely as they liked. The four female practitioners went on a hunger strike to protest the inhuman persecution.
