It has been learned that Dafa practitioner Li Yukun, a worker of Chongqing City Grinding Machine Factory, was tortured to death at the end of December 2000 when she went to Beijing to validate the Fa for the second time.

On December 27, 2000, another practitioner went to Beijing together with Li Yukun. As soon as their train arrived in Beijing, they were arrested and taken to different places. That practitioner was able to escape not long after. Several days after she came back to Chongqing, on January 5. 2001, she heard from Li Yukun's family that Li had died and that they had come back from Beijing with a box containing her ashes.
