Mr. Pang Shikun began cultivating Falun Dafa while in prison. He was tortured in Siping Prison and died on June 13, 2009.
Mr. Pang previously traded grain, and mixed sand in with his grain to increase his profits. He was thus sentenced to more than a dozen years of imprisonment. During his term in Gongzhuling Prison, he learned Falun Dafa and enlightened to how a person should live and became determined to become a good person.
After his return, the guards inhumanly tortured him in order to force him give up the practice. He was transferred to the Siping Prison, locked in a small cell with no sunlight or bedding, for 13 months. He had endured unthinkable torture. On June 11, 2009, guards called his family, said he was dying, and was being bailed out on medical parole. On June 13, 2009, Mr. Pang died in the prison hospital. He was barefooted, and his body was very pale due to being locked in a small cell for such a long time. His body was cremated at 9:00 a.m. on June 18, 2009.
