(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Sun Pinghua is a Falun Gong practitioner in his thirties. He is employed at a fertilizer factory in Yueyang City, Hunan Province. On the morning of March 18, 2008, while on his way to work, Mr. Sun was illegally arrested by Jiang Chao from the Yueyanglou District Domestic Security Division of the city police department, along with personnel from a nearby police station.

On the afternoon of the same day, two police vehicles arrived at Mr. Sun's home and several people illegally rushed into his residence, stealing many items belonging to his family, including a computer used by a child for study.

While in detention, Mr. Sun Pinghua was interrogated under torture for several days and nights. According to people imprisoned at the same location, Mr. Sun Pinghua lost feeling in his left hand due to the torture.

Mr. Sun Pinghua's family went to the Yueyanglou Sub-bureau of the Yueyang City Police Department and the detention center five or six times to visit him, but were not allowed to see him.

On April 15, Mr. Sun Pinghua's wife received a so-called notice of arrest from the Yueyanglou Sub-bureau. The notice had an official seal from the Yueyanglou Sub-bureau of the Yueyang City Police Department, but lacked the signature of any personnel responsible for her case.
