One day in 2002, while he was building his new home, a few authorities broke into his home, arrested and took him to the township government for persecution. They also extorted 2,000 yuan from him. He suffered physically and mentally because of the persecution. His old illnesses recurred. He passed away on December 26, 2004. The authorities responsible persons are Yang Xiu (the secretary of the Communist Party of Han Village), Xing Mingzhi (the associate director of Gaoli Township), Zhang Wenhua, and Liu Wenxing.
