Ms. Zhao Tingyun from Henan Province Tortured to Death on Ninth Day in Police Custody

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhao Tingyun from Xinxiang City, Henan Province died on the ninth day of being in police custody. On January 6th, 2006, Zhao Tingyun went to the home of practitioner Li Beiping. Police officers who were staking out Li Beiping's home arrested Ms. Zhao and put her in custody. She held a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was savagely force-fed. She died on the ninth day of detention. The police reported that Ms. Zhao died around 5:00 a.m. on January 15th.

Zhao Tingyun was born in 1951 and had worked at the Xinxiang City Bus Factory but was laid off and lived at the factory family dormitory. She started practising Dafa in January 1998 and was detained several times after the persecution of Dafa began on July 20th, 1999.

On November 7th, 2002, Zhao Tingyun was arrested by local police on the way to deliver food to her husband at work. She was incarcerated at the Xinxiang City Detention Centre. The police searched her and took the keys to her home from her. They ransacked her home and took her son's computer, which was bought while he was studying at a university. They also took some Dafa materials and Dafa books. Political heads Chen, Liu Desheng and Qin, a hired person, were the ones who ransacked her home. Zhao Tingyun and other Dafa practitioners held at the Xinxiang Detention Centre went on group hunger strike for 26 days to protest the persecution. They were force-fed with saturated saline solution.

During the Chinese New Year on February 4th, 2005, Zhao Tingyun and her family went to their hometown for the celebration. They told people the facts of Falun Dafa on their way and were reported to the police. Officers from the Nanhuan Police Department in Xinxiang City arrested and body-searched them.

Around 5:00 p.m. on January 6th, agents from the Xinxiang City 610 Office1, from the Hongqi Police Department and from the Xidajie Police Department broke into the home of practitioner Li Beiping.
