( Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Wang Mingrong from Chengdu City was arrested and taken to the Xinjin Brainwashing Center around September 7, 2011. (To disguise its true function to the outside world, the brainwashing center is officially called the “Chengdu City Law Education Center.”) Ms. Wang died of severe physical abuse and mistreatment around September 17, less than ten days after being incarcerated. According to a witness, she was subjected to beatings and her body was covered in bruises. A funeral was held on September 22, and her remains were cremated on September 23.

Jinniu District 610 Office agents exerted great pressure on Ms. Wang's family, so her family dared not reveal any detailed information about her death. Most of Ms. Wang's friends have yet to hear about her death.

Ms. Wang Mingrong was head nurse at the Chengdu City Kangfu Hospital. Around September 7, 2011, officers from the Jinquan Street Affairs Office, Jinquan Police Station and 610 Office agents in the Jinniu District arrested her and took her to the Xinjin Brainwashing Center. According to an insider, Ms. Wang held a hunger strike to protest the persecution, and she was force-fed and beaten.

More than 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been held in the Xinjin Brainwashing Center, where they were subjected to physical torture and mental torment. They were injected with drugs that damage the central nervous system, and their food and drinking water were laced with unknown substances, which caused them great harm. Due to the severe abuse and pressure, many suffered from nervous breakdowns, developed mental impairment, became physically disabled, developed symptoms of illnesses, and some even died. Practitioners who died as a result of persecution in this brainwashing center include Ms. Deng Shufen, Li Xiaowen, Mr. Xie Deqing, and Ms. Liu Shenglu. The practitioners who suffered a mental collapse as a result of persecution include Ms. Zhu Xia, Ms. Liu Ying and Ms. Tan Shaolan.
