Ten Falun Dafa Practitioners Arrested in Xinjin County, Sichuan Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On March 14, 2006, relatives and friends of Falun Dafa practitioner Zhu Sufang in Wenjing Township, Xinjin County, Chengdu City, Sichuan, went to her home to pay a visit to her mother who was ill. On that day at approximately three o'clock, Wenjing local police department and Xinjin police dispatched about 18 personnel in five police vehicles to surround Zhu Sufang's home. One of the police officers even aimed a gun at the ten Falun Dafa practitioners who were in the living room chatting about their daily activities. All the practitioners were then dragged into the police vehicles one by one and taken to Wenjing local police department and imprisoned there.
The ten practitioners were all forced to stand up from 9:00 p.m. until dawn the next morning. The police also drew circles on the ground around them and prohibited them from stepping out of the circles even half a step. Five practitioners were slapped by policemen of the Wenjing local police department and four practitioners were handcuffed and hung up by the handcuffs. Among the Falun Dafa practitioners who were beaten or hung up, the eldest one is 68 years old. The practitioners' homes were also ransacked and their Dafa books and other belongings were confiscated. On March 15, they were officially detained.
Zhu Sufang and three other practitioners were unlawfully held in custody for 13 days; all the others were released separately. The detained practitioners were not permitted to bring in their daily necessities and had to buy all their daily necessities from the house of detention (the house of detention has been profiting by arbitrarily hiking prices ever since 1999.)
