(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Pan Xuecheng, 70 years old, lived in the Fourth Group of the Shuijiangwenwu Village, in Xinjin County, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, Mr. Pan had diabetes and heart disease, and thus lost the ability to work. After beginning to cultivate Falun Dafa in June 1997, he gradually recovered, and became healthy with a rosy complexion. He no longer needed to take medicine, he was able to do farm work, and changed into a totally new person.

Pan Xuecheng went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa in the autumn of 2000, and was illegally arrested by policemen in Chengdu City. Local government officials came to his home, took away his Dafa books, and extorted five hundred yuan.

After January 24, 2001 (the Chinese New Year), Mr. Pan was reported and arrested and detained for 45 days in the Wujin Police Station. Upon being released, he was arrested and taken to the Township Government to be interrogated. In 2004, Mr. Pan was working an overnight security job, but he was reported, chased, and body searched by the Chinese Communist Party Secretary Wei Zhongquan (male).

Under long-term persecution, the elderly Mr. Pan's mental and physical health was severely damaged. His old sicknesses came back, causing his lung to fester and he was vomiting blood. He died on September 27, 2005.
