(Minghui.org) A Huaihua City, Hunan Province resident suffered multiple bone fractures after being beaten by police for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

The following is Ms. Zeng Xiaoying’s own account.


I was arrested on April 19, 2022, after Zhang Hua, the deputy director of Huaihua Domestic Security Office, saw me and another practitioner, Ms. Wang, distributing informational materials about Falun Gong in a mall.

We were taken to the Tuanjie Police Station, where four officers interrogated me. Later, three of them left, with one officer staying in the room. He wasn’t wearing a police uniform and refused to tell us his name. He asked me to sign the prepared deposition. I saw that he had written the word “cult” on the document and demanded that he show the legal documents for that claim. I also asked him why he wasn’t wearing a police uniform. He refused to answer. When I tried to cross out the word “cult,” he began to beat me.

He hit me on my chest, and I was knocked down. My jade bracelet was broken and my wrists swelled. I realized that the deposition was totally fabricated and I tore it up. That officer left after repeatedly threatening to sentence me.

I lay on the ground and was unable to get up. The other practitioner, Ms. Wang, struggled to help me stand up.

I was beaten at around 4 p.m. By 10: 30 p.m., the police said if I didn’t go home, they would detain me. Ms. Wang called a taxi to take me home. My family then carried me upstairs.

My family took me to the hospital the next day. The doctor found that I had six fractures on the joints on the right side of my body, one fracture on my chest, and another fracture in one rib in the back. He warned that if I didn’t receive proper treatment, I may lose part of my mobility in the future.
