Those who participated in the persecution included Diao Xuesong, Jin Qingfu, and Gao Zhonghai.

(1) There are two versions of the "Handcuff Hanging Torture:" (a) With both hands cuffed behind the back and only toes touching the ground, the victim is hung by a rope that is tied to a metal window frame. (b) One hand of a practitioner is cuffed to one bunk bed and the other hand to another bed, and the two beds are pulled in the opposite directions. It is extremely painful when the beds are pulled apart. See illustration at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/11/17/54624.html
