(Clearwisdom.net) At around 9 a.m. on April 9, 2008, four Falun Gong practitioners from Group Five, Caojia Village, Gudianzi Town, Jilin City, Jilin Province, were arrested. They are Li Yanwei and his wife Ding Qin, You Zuozai and his wife Kan Xuxiang.

At close to noon on April 9, 2008. Yan Jilian, head of the Caojia Village Women's Federation, Wang Zhaomin, chief of the Gudianzi Town Police Station and another unidentified person searched the homes of Falun Gong practitioners one by one. When they entered a home, they first inspected how the residents received TV signals. When they arrived at You Zuozai's home, the couple was working in the field and only You's parents, who are in their 80's and 90's, were at home. After they checked the TV, the perpetrators took away several truth-clarifying CDs. When they arrived at Li Yanwei's home, the couple was also not at home. Only their mother, who is in her 80's, was at home. They checked the TV signals here also.

At 9 p.m. that night, Ma Yixi, head of Caojia Village and a dozen police from the Gudianzi Town Police Station and the Jilin City Police Department came to arrest the Falun Gong practitioners. When they arrived at You Zuozai's home, You did not open the door. So they just kicked the yard door and the room door open and took the couple away. They then confiscated Dafa books and a TV signal receiver.

On the next day, the police searched You Zuozai's home twice. You's mother said to her neighbors, "They came four or five times in the two days, which really frightened me."

When the police searched Li Yanwei's home, they rummaged everywhere and confiscated Dafa books, materials, a TV signal receiver, etc. The Li Yanwei couple was also taken away. Li's mother was left tearful and could not eat for days. When meeting neighbors, she just cried, "My son, when can you come back?"

That night, the four Falun Gong practitioners were detained in the Gudianzi Police Station. The CCP personnel and police tortured Li Yanwei to try and extort a confession. The police beat him and force-fed him with horseradish concentrate. The next day, the four practitioners were transferred to Jilin City. Their families wanted to deliver clothes to them, but their requests were denied.
