Liao Qinying, a 33-year-old woman from a village in Wujin city, eastern Jiangsu province, was taken into custody around 8:30 am November 8, 2001, by four local government officials who barged into her home while she was husking rice, the Falun Dafa Information Center said.

They ordered her to go to the local government office and when she refused, the men grabbed her and forced her into the police car, the center said.

Later that day, her husband was called to the local police station where police told him his wife had died in the police car at 9:35 am.
