Mr. Zheng Xianyu, 74, was a retired employee of the Sichuan Forestry. Mr. Zheng lived in the No. 2 Group, Puming Village, Mianyang City, Sichuan Province. He started to practice Falun Gong in 1998. Within one year he recovered from his illnesses, including urine calculus. One morning in June 2000, Mr. Zheng went to the local Dongtian Park to attend a Fa conference. When he arrived at the gate of the park, police officers in hiding from the Xiaofuqiao Police Station arrested him. In the police station he was interrogated and threatened. They ransacked his home and confiscated all his Dafa books. Because at that time he didn't understand the Fa deeply enough, under pressure he gave his fingerprints on the record and signed a guarantee statement. Later, he solemnly declared on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website these actions were invalid and that he would firmly practice Dafa. Subsequently, Gao Yupu, party secretary of the No. 2 Group, Puming Village often led the local police to harass and threaten him. The elderly man's old illnesses, including urine calculus, relapsed and he died on July 14, 2001.
