Around 2:00 p.m. on October 18, 2011, Mr. Zhang Qingsheng and his 25-year-old daughter, Ms. Zhang Hui, were arrested at his apartment. At 6:00 p.m., their home was ransacked, and two computers and printers, a CD-burner, and cash were taken. The father and daughter were detained in the Leye Police Station that evening and taken to the Harbin City No.7 Division the next day.
Participating in the arrests were officers from the Songbei Criminal Police Team, Leye Police Station, and Harbin City No.3 Power Plant Police Station. Harbin City Domestic Security Division officer Wang Li is in charge of the case.
Mr. Zhang's wife, Ms. Sun Yuhua, retired from the No.3 Fire and Electricity Company.

At around 2:00 p.m. on January 14, 2004, Chen Zhaolin, head of the Hulan County Domestic Security Division, and others arrested Ms. Sun on her way back home from visiting her neighbor. They took her to the Domestic Security Division, where they tortured and interrogated her.
