Family of Eight Arrested, Baby Boy Left Home Alone for One Day
(Minghui.org) A months-old baby boy was left home alone for one day after his parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts were arrested for his grandparents' faith in Falun Gong.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Mr. Yue Kejian, 76, and his wife Ms. Li Youxiang, 73, were seized from their home in Gaoping City, Shanxi Province, on August 30, 2019. Their two sons and a daughter, as well as their respective spouses, were also arrested.
The younger couple's baby boy, who was still nursing, was thrown aside by police officers during the arrests. He was left at home alone until his parents, uncles, and aunts were released the next day.
The infant's grandparents, however, remained in custody. Mr. Yue is currently held at Gaoping City Detention Center, and Ms. Li is detained at Jincheng City Detention Center. Their arrests have been approved.
It was reported that several other Falun Gong practitioners were also arrested on August 30, 2019. More details are being investigated.
