They also force-fed her with an unknown drug, hit her head against the wall and poured cold water over her. She is now in a precarious condition.

Ms. Wang was seized in a group arrest at 3 a.m. on July 6, 2019. Her husband, Mr. Ma Kuo, was also arrested. More than three hundred police officers were mobilized for the operation.
