In the evening of April 5, 2006, Falun Gong practitioner Yang Xuebao from Yuhong District, Shenyang City was reported to authorities when distributing truth clarification materials. He was illegally arrested by Ma Wei, Gu Xin and others from the Weigong Police Station of the Tiexi District Police Department. Later that night, the two police officers and about ten other agents, including Yang Hai from Tiexi Police Department National Security Division, arrested Yang Xuebao's wife and another practitioner, Li Guanghao, who was visiting the home. Yang Xuebao's two residences were ransacked.

Yang Hai, Li and another officer from Tiexi District Police Department National Security Division and Gu Xin from the Weigong Police Station tortured Li Guanghao at the police station. They didn't let him sleep for one day and one night.

On the morning of April 6, Li from Tiexi District National Security Division handcuffed Li Guanghao to the back of a chair and tortured him. Because he could not extort a confession, he threatened Li Guanghao, "It's nothing if I beat you to death, because it'll be counted as suicide! We'll cut out your heart and liver, like at Sujiatun Concentration Camp!"

At 6:00 p.m. on April 6, Gu Xin and other officers from Weigong Police Station sent Li Guanghao and Yang Xuebao to the Tiexi District Detention Center. The detention center authorities refused to accept them because of their injuries from the beatings. Diagnoses at the No. 2 Hospital Affiliated With Shenyang Medical University revealed that Yang Xuebao has heart disease and Li Guanghao had a contusion on his lower back. The two practitioners were later taken back to Tiexi District Detention Center. Li Guanghao held a hunger strike for five days to protest the persecution. He could not walk and was extremely weak. On April 10, his family took him home.

Right now, Yang Xuebao is being held at the Tiexi District Detention Center in Wangjiahezi.

Practitioner Cai Minzhi is being held at the Shenyang City Detention Center.
