Dafa practitioner Zhang Zhenqiu, female, 43, was a worker who lived on the second floor of unit one of the Tire Factory Residential Building in Changchun City, Jilin Province.

On February 20, 2003, while doing truth-clarification work, Ms. Zhang was reported to the police and thus arrested. The lawless police subjected her to brutal torture in the Kuancheng District Police Department. Not until she was near death did they stop the torture and send her to the Armed Police Hospital for emergency treatment. However, she died despite the rescue efforts.
