Dafa practitioner Ding Gangzi, male, 47 years old, was a resident of Chengguan Township in Zanhuang County of Shijiazhuang City, Hebei province. Since beginning to practice Dafa in 1997, he did everything according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Benevolence, and Forbearance," always helped others with a kind-heart, and never sought after fame or personal gain. He ran a bicycle repair shop by the roadside, providing the best services to his customers. In his spare time, he repaired the roads around his shop voluntarily. All his neighbors agree he was a very nice person. Yet, even such a nice person was persecuted after July 20, 1999. He was illegally detained 5 times, arrested at home without any legal warrants 3 times, and abused while being detained, which led to his death.
