On December 21, 2002, over 20 policemen from the Tangshan and Fengrun Public Security Bureaus, led by their directors, broke into a Falun Dafa material site. They tied up practitioner Feng Haijuan (female) and Han Xueyu (male) with ropes and beat them up. In order to coerce the two practitioners into revealing other practitioners' names, the police almost totally stripped off Han Xueyu's trousers in public. The chaos of the beatings and abuse shocked the neighbors. Then the two practitioners were brought to the Tangshan Iron & Steel Plant, where the policemen kept shocking Han Xueyu using wires hooked up to a rotary telephone. In the evening, the police sent them to the Fengrun District. Feng Haijuan was then transferred to the Tuanjielu Police Substation where police from the No.1 Section of the Fengrun Public Security Bureau cuffed her to a metal chair and shocked her with a device attached to a rotary telephone until her heart started to beat irregularly.
