Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Shen Baoping, 28, was from Xinjiang Province. The persecutors savagely tortured him in the Changji Detention Center simply because he remained firm in his belief in Falun Gong. The police stripped him of all his clothes and tied him onto a narrow plank. He was not allowed to get up even while eating or relieving himself. He suffered severe bodily and mental harm from this torture. Because Mr. Shen was steadfast in Dafa, the lawless officials sentenced him to a prison term. While in prison, he remained firm in his belief and therefore suffered long-term torture. Shen Baoping was formerly a strong and healthy person, but was tortured so severely that he looked like a skeleton and was covered with wounds all over his body prior to his tragic and untimely death.
