A 50-year old woman from Liaoning province, while not a practitioner, was arrested on March 6, 2003 because she was going Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong practitioners. The police searched people at the Huludao Train Station terminals, and found that she had 32 Falun Gong flyers, in addition to her own letters.

The Huludao Train Station Police Department illegally detained her for 24 hours. During the detention, the police asked her where she got the flyers. She replied, "I made copies myself." They asked where she made the copies, and she said, "That I can't tell you." The police then transferred her over to the Jinzhou Train Station Police Department, and they illegally kept her there for 3 days. The Huludao Political Security Office detained her for another 15 days, and even locked her in a mental hospital for a week in order to torture her.
