Mr. Zhu Xianghe was 64 years old and lived near Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province. Around April 14, 2005, he was abducted and sent to the Sutang Brainwashing Class located in Suining County, because he refused to give up his belief in Falun Dafa. He was beaten to death only five days later on April 19, 2005. Witnesses who saw his body said his fingers and toes had turned black, his eyeballs and his internal organs had been removed, a truly horrific sight. His son, placed under great pressure by local officials, said his father's body had only lost some internal organs and that the eyes were not removed. Police said he died from natural causes, but it is clear that they are trying to cover up the truth. Details are under investigation.
There were more than ten Falun Dafa practitioners locked in the Sutang Brainwashing Class. In order to force them to accept the brainwashing, the police used wooden sticks to beat their fingers, toes, feet, and lower abdomen. Then they used electric batons to shock them. They have moved these Falun Dafa practitioners to other locations after Mr. Zhu Xianghe was beaten to death, fearing that the truth would get out.
The Suining County 610 Office (1) spread lies, saying that Mr. Zhu had committed suicide after they beat him to death.
