On June 10, 2001, Zhang Shengfan, a disabled person with crutches, was arrested by Shuangcheng police in Helongjiang province. Two days later, Zhang would no longer need his crutches. He was beaten to death because he was a Falun Gong practitioner.

Early last year, 39 years old Zhang Shengfan went to appeal for Falun Gong in Beijing. After being sent back home, he was arrested and detained in Shuangcheng Second Detention Center many times. His family had to pay 2,000 Yuan [In urban areas of China, yearly income is about 6,000 Chinese Yuan] in order to bail him out. Zhang's parents died when he was young. His brother borrowed the money from every conceivable source. On Jan. 19, 2001, while Zhang was assisting students with their studies in his house, the police came and took him to a brainwashing class in the dormitory of the Staff Training School, which is in the back yard of Wenlu Middle School. On June 10, he was detained again. Zhang was brutally beaten to death on the morning of June 12.
