The main hatchet men were the mayor, Li Yamin, and the secretary, Dong Shujun. The fourth time was after the New Year. The police found a bag of leaflets in Yan Kui's home and arrested him. Dong Shujun, Li Zhenggong, and seven other policemen lashed him with a steel whip, causing him to pass out seven times. They poured cold water on him to wake him up, then resumed the torture.
