In 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong and to validate Falun Dafa. He was taken to the local police station where the Village Security Official, Bao Qinglin (male), demanded that he write a guarantee statement to stop practicing and not return to Beijing to appeal. Bao also extorted 1500 yuan from Mr. Xu without issuing any receipt. Bao forced Mr. Xu to curse Master Li. Mr. Xu was so deeply hurt both mentally and physically, that his old illness came back.
