(Clearwisdom.net) I am an older female Dafa practitioner from Ziyang City, Sichuan Province. On October 4, 2002, I was nearly tortured to death by the police from Dayi County Public Security Sub-Bureau of Ziyang City.
At approximately 4:00 a.m. on September 25, 2002, a group of policemen kicked open the door of my relative's home in Dayi County and forcibly handcuffed me, my relative, and another three people. They then took us to the Criminal Police Section of Dayi County Public Security Sub-Bureau. Zhou Wencai, the chief officer of the section, repeatedly beat my face and kicked me until I nearly lost consciousness. Even now, my left shoulder is in a lot of pain and I cannot move it. Soon after, the police handcuffed an older woman and I in a cell with both hands tied together behind our backs. We were then confined under these conditions for 36 hours and forbidden to use the restroom, drink water, eat, or sleep. I gradually found it difficult to breathe. I then warned them that I had a severe heart condition before and never had I suffered from this illness again ever since I started cultivating Falun Gong. However, now I felt very uncomfortable in the heart because of their abuse. They then sent me to a Drug Rehabilitation Center. I requested my release under the condition that I was declared not guilty of anything. Although during this period of time it was very difficult to breathe, and twice I had suffered chest pains, they still refused to release me. At that point, I decided to start a hunger strike.
On October 3, Zhang, the head of the center, handcuffed both my hands and feet to iron bars in the spread eagle position and pulled my head backwards by my hair, making my head squeeze into the space between the two iron bars that was narrower than the width of my head. This caused me extreme pain and dizziness. With my face looking upward, he tightly held both my nose and check, and started savagely force-feeding me. Another older lady, practitioner Liao Chaoqi, was tortured to death that night after an extended period of brutal force-feeding. Late that night, my breathing became heavy and I suffered chest pains. My entire body began to twitch and I lost consciousness. When I woke up at 8:00 a.m. on October 4, I found that I was in a hospital and my pulse was up to 218 heartbeats per minute.
At about 9:00 a.m. that morning, the chief political officer, the deputy chief of the Dayi County Public Security Sub-Bureau, and a few policemen came to the ward where I was located. Policeman Chen declared that they would not let me go until I told them what they wanted. I immediately said to them, "It is impossible to get even a word of information about other practitioners from my mouth!"
As a result of the brutal persecution I suffered from the Dayi County Public Security Sub-Bureau, particularly the tortures imposed by Zhou Wencai, the chief officer of criminal section, and Zhang, the head of the Drug Rehabilitation Center, both my body and mind were severely injured. Even up to this day, I still have an abnormal pulse and continue to feel very uncomfortable, dizzy, and disoriented.
Since July 20, 1999, due to the inhumane persecution of Falun Gong, my family has been broken apart. My husband was tortured to disability by his workplace, the Ziyang Lanjun Automobile Manufacturing Company. Moreover, my workplace stopped my retirement pension. Furthermore, the Party Secretary Li Guanglin and security guard Luo Zuli of my workplace even cooperated with the police to have me kidnapped.
After I was released, the Ziyang Public Security Bureau still sent police to search me, attempting to catch me again. I was forced to leave my residence and live on the streets to avoid further persecution. Then in October 2002, my life was nearly taken by the Dayi County Public Security Sub-Bureau.
All of what I have endured during the past 3 years is merely because I strive to be a healthy, good person with high moral standards, to live by the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
