(Clearwisdom.net) Xu Ailian is a Dafa practitioner from Xiangtan County, Hunan Province. Because she persisted in practicing Dafa, she was arrested. At present, she is being held in Xiangtan City Mental Hospital. When Ms. Xu went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution, she was held down by 5 to 6 hospital staff members and then brutally force-fed by doctors, with a tube inserted into her nose. They also shocked her with a device that carries high voltage electricity. Under orders from the local authorities, the hospital doctors shackled Ms. Xu to a bed and injected her with drugs that damage the central nervous system. She lost consciousness almost as soon as she was injected. Ms. Xu was tied down like this to her bed for seven days in a row. Even now she is still not clear-headed, and is short of breath and fatigued.

In order to cover up their crimes, Xiangtan City Mental Hospital has recently changed its name to Xiangtan City Fifth People's Hospital.
