On the morning of June 16, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioners from Hengshui City, Hebei Province accompanied practitioners Mr. Sun Liangsheng's and Kang Yanxiang's families to the Hengshui City 610 Office to ask for the unconditional release of their family members. Right after that, the Hengshui City 610 Office set up a "Special Case Group," and frenziedly arrested over 10 Dafa practitioners. It was Li Junqu, the Secretary of Hengshui City Communist Party Committee, and Zhang Zengliang and Wang Baojun, the Directors in charge of politics and law in the Municipal Committee, who ordered the creation of the 610 Office's Special Case Group that persecutes Dafa practitioners.
The Dafa practitioners who were arrested and sentenced are as follows: Mr. Sun Liangsheng, 40, an excellent teacher from the No.2 High School in Hengshui City, and Kang Yanxiang, 39, an employee of the Hengshui City Science Committee. Both of them have been persecuted many times. On the New Years Day of 2004, personnel from the Hengshui City 610 Office instigated the Hengshui City's Taocheng District Police Department to arrest Mr. Sun Liangsheng and Kang Yanxiang. After they were detained for 18 months, the court from the Taocheng District of Hengshui City fabricated some crimes and sentenced them to another four years in prison.
For a long time, Mr. Sun and Kang's families lost contact with them. On June 16, 2005, their families went to the Hengshui City 610 Office with other practitioners to inquire about their whereabouts and demand their unconditional release. In response to this, the Hengshui City 610 Office immediately set up the 610 Office's Special Case Group. Since June 16, using the pictures they secretly took of Dafa practitioners, they have arrested over 10 Dafa practitioners, including Mr. Sun's wife and Kang Yanxiang's brother .
On the afternoon of June 16, Special Case Group police officers Li Yibing and Zuo Tiehan went to the school where Mr. Sun's wife, Ms. Wen Shuqiao was and interrogated her. They arrested her a few days later. Mr. Sun and Ms. Wen's two high school daughters were left at home.
Meanwhile the Hengshui City 610 Office also instigated police officers to go to Zaoqiang and Ji County respectively and arrest Dafa practitioners who were involved in this "incident." They arrested practitioner Mr. An Dasheng from Zaoqiang. Only after they tortured him to the brink of death did they finally release him. Police officers also broke into the homes of practitioner Mr. Jiang Hongtu and another elderly practitioner. They attempted to arrest Jaing Hongtu, but in vain.
Mr. Kang Yansu, Mr. Kang Yanxiang's older brother, was a teacher at the Diwang School in Xuzhuang Township, Jizhou City. On June 16, he took their 84-year-old mother to the Municipal Committee 610 Office to inquire about his brother's situation. On June 21, the principal of his school asked Mr. Kang Yansu to deliver materials to the Educational Committee, thereby assisting the police with his arrest.
On June 23, Shang Wenling, Xia Shige and other practitioners from Xuzhuang Township, Jizhou City were arrested as well. Later, Xia Shengguo, Wang Pingjun and Zhu Xinkuan from Jizhong were arrested one after another.
In mid-July, Falun Gong practitioner Liu Ping from the No.2 People's Hospital in Hengshui City was arrested.
On August 5, practitioner Mr. Qi Zhengui, over 60, was arrested right after returning home from his trip to visit relatives in Northeast China.
On August 26, the police surrounded practitioner Ms. Yang Qiaoling's apartment. With the help of righteous thoughts, Ms. Yang stopped them from committing wrongful acts and then managed to escape. At about 11:30 p.m., on August 28, police officers broke into her home, but she wasn't there.
Thus far, there have been 13 Dafa practitioners arrested. All of them are held in the Hengshui City Detention Center. Also, they attempted to find out the organizer and person in charge of this incident. They accused Mr. Qiu Chaocang of being the organizer and intended to persecute him. They harassed Mr. Qin's family members and putting pressure on him and his family.
It was said that Li Junqu, the Secretary of the Municipal Committee, was very upset about this incident. He ordered that all of the practitioners who were involved be sentenced to a forced labor camp. He also planned and plotted the persecution of practitioners himself.
