Dafa practitioners Wang Hongxiang, Xiao Jinyu, Zhang Jian, Jia Shenglin, Bai Mingxu, Huang Lijuan, Liu Lei, Mr. Tian, and Ms. Sun were inside their apartment, preparing some Falun Dafa truth-clarifying materials, when about 30 to 40 policemen broke in, smashing the locks and forcing open the apartment door. The policemen put bags over the heads of five people and beat them unconscious. They used steel bars, leather belts, electric batons and other torture devices in their abuse. Liu Lei and Mr. Tian's wife were severely beaten and fell to their deaths from a seventh floor window.
