(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhao Guoxin and his wife, Ms. Wang Ying, both practice Falun Dafa. They live in the Workers and Peasants District, Hegang City, Heilongjiang Province. On July 28, 2001, Mr. Zhao was killed after he was illegally arrested by the Jiamusi Railway Police for having Dafa related materials with him. Ms. Wang's father and father-in-law could not bear the pain of losing him, and they also died one after the other. Despite these events, the police at Hegang still try to torment Ms. Wang Ying by searching her house and confiscating her property, sentencing her and torturing her. The following is this couple's story in more detail.

In July 2001, Mr. Zhao Guoxin's father-in-law was operated in Jiamusi Stomatological Hospital for the treatment of cancer under his tongue. On July 18, 2006, the day after the operation, Mr. Zhao took his daughter to visit his father-in-law at the hospital. The two planned to catch the train at 4:00 p.m. to go back to Hegang, but the inspector at the station found some Dafa related materials in Mr. Zhao's bag and questioned him and his daughter at Jiamusi Railway Local Station. Because Mr. Zhao refused to tell where the materials came from nor would he give them the details about his name and address, they confiscated his identification card.

At that time, his daughter remembered that she had her mother's pager on her and that if it were confiscated by the police, many practitioners could be in immediate danger. The daughter asked to use the toilet. The police refused. The daughter then said, "I am 16 years old. I will be so embarrassed if I wet myself." After her repeated begging, the police grabbed her arm fiercely and took her to the toilet. The daughter made up some excuses to demand her privacy and then got rid of the pager. When the daughter returned, her father was unconscious, his head fallen forward and his stomach swollen. Zhao Guoxin was then taken to a hospital for a CT scan. The results showed that he had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and lost a great deal of blood. He stopped breathing three hours later. According to legal and medical professionals, such heavy bleeding could only be caused by a sudden strong shake or blow. It is known that if the police put a soft layer on top of the body parts before beating someone, there will be no marks left on the body, no matter how severe the beating is. But in China no one dares to take Falun Gong practitioners' cases to the court, and still today, no charges have been brought over this matter.

Three months later, on November 3,2006, led by the deputy director of the police station. Wu Jianguo. with the involvement of the deputy director of the Public Security Bureau Hegang Branch, Li Shujiang, and the directors of the Workers and Peasants District Jiefang Road Local Police Station, Wang Qingwen and Li Shujiang, the police tried to break into Zhao Guoxin's home after 10 p.m. at night without due cause. Wang Ying and her daughter were awakened by furious banging on the door and voices announcing that it was the local police. Ms. Wang suggested they come back the next day as it was too late. The police refused to listen to her and started to smash and pry open the locked door. Finally the door was smashed open. A group of policemen turned the rooms upside down. They even confiscated the daughter's learning tape and brother's wedding video as "evidence." They also took Wang Ying to the Jiefang Road Local Police Station.

Police officer Li Shujiang beat Ms. Wang and tried to force her to tell where the Falun Dafa materials were from. She did not cooperate. The next day Li Shujiang took her to the No. 2 Detention Center. Li Shulin, the director of the detention center, tortured Wang Ying by forcing her to wear a one meter long rod, with her hands tied to her ankles. Several people had to carry her to the toilet. He made her sit on the concrete floor for 17 to 18 days straight. He also deprived of sleep for 24 hours a day. As soon as she closed her eyes the criminal inmates beat her and poured cold water on her face.

Just after Zhao Guoxin's father-in-law's operation and while he was still having chemotherapy, he heard the news that his son-in-law had been beaten to death and his daughter had been arrested again. He was filled with such deep sorrow that his condition worsened until, in the end, he died. Zhao Guoxin's father also fell ill after he lost his beloved son and the detention center refused to let his daughter-in-law visit him. He also passed away after a few months.

Ms. Wang Ying bore great suffering and physical torture at the detention center. She was repeatedly questioned, served with arrest warrants, and sentenced. Later, she was detained at Harbin Women's Prison.

On April 3, 2004, former 9th Division team leader Yan Yuhua, political instructor Zhang Xiuli, and policeman Jia Wenjun, joined by criminal inmates Xuzhen and Qiao Qingyan, made up a "reform" class. They used various methods such as beatings, verbal abuse, squatting, sleep deprivation, brainwashing programs defaming Dafa, and solitary confinement in order to try to force Ms. Want to "reform."

Since 2006, the 11th Division of the Harbin Women's Prison has been reorganized into the "Tackle the Fort" Division. Practitioners are sent to this division to be "reformed" as soon as they arrive at the prison. The "Tackle the Fort" Division is located at the 4th level of the Dining Hall, far away from other prison cells and workshops. There are no monitoring facilities there. In this division, the police order seven or eight criminal inmates to attack one practitioner. They use inhumane methods such as beatings, verbal abuse, squatting, prolonged sleep deprivation, lies and deceit, etc. to try to "reform" practitioners. It is said that they have even welded metal cages to lock up practitioners.
