Ms. Zhao Chunying was a 56-year-old Dafa practitioner from Jixi City, Heilongjiang Province. After July 1999, because she went to appeal for Falun Dafa, she was arrested and detained at the Hengshan District Branch Office of the Jixi City Police Department, where she was beaten and cursed at. After Ms. Zhao was released, she kept on diligently practicing Falun Dafa. In April 2003, she was again arrested by the Hengshan District Branch Office. The police brutally tortured her in order to extract a confession from her. As a result of the torture and abuse, she passed away in May.
