For example, the perpetrators physically abused him, burned his belly with an electric iron, poured boiling water on his head, leading to permanent hair loss in that area. Guards also used pliers to pull out his teeth. He was denied sleep for several days, and the guards would not let him use the toilet. As a result, he often had to soil himself. Mr. Zeng and several other practitioners incarcerated at Deyang Prison resisted the persecution with righteous thoughts. He was transferred to the Guangyuan Prison in 2003.
