Officers slapped him in the face and kicked him fiercely. They pierced Mr. Ding's fingertips with needles, then they slammed his hands to the ground with the needles still in them.

They also attempted to force him renounce Falun Gong. Later on, Mr. Ding was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
As a result of the torture he was subjugated to, Mr. Ding was on the verge of death before finally being released. However, the officers still routinely went to his home to harass him. Mr. Ding passed away on October 12, 2011.
Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began its suppression of Falun Gong in July 1999, the Anqiu 610 Office and the Domestic Security Team have persisted in actively arresting Falun Gong practitioners. They torture the practitioners and have been responsible for many deaths including Mr. Su Baolan from Wangjiazhuangzi Town, Mr. Zhang Wenliang from Jingzhi Town, and Ms. Li Xiuzhen from Hongshagou Town, among many others.
