(Minghui.org) A Hefei City resident was recently arrested and interrogated with torture for spreading information about Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

Mr. Ji Guangkui, 61, was home on March 18, 2017 when he received a call asking him to come out of his apartment building to move his car, which was said to have blocked other cars. As soon as he stepped out, more than one dozen officers rushed to seize him. The police next ransacked his home and confiscated three laptops, two cell phones, three printers, and some Falun Gong materials.

A 17-hour marathon interrogation ensued, with Mr. Ji brutalized and badly injured by police. One officer pushed four bamboo sticks into Mr. Ji’s middle finger and ring finger, causing terrible pain and bleeding. He also hit Mr. Ji in the head and chest. At one point, he put Mr. Ji in a choke hold. Two other officers watched the torture unfold, saying, “Nothing to worry about treating you guys [referring to Falun Gong practitioners] like this!”

Mr. Ji still has bruises on his body and experiences chest pain.

Mr. Ji’s lawyer is gathering evidence in his effort to seek justice for his client.
