Note: The following is a shortened version of a longer and more detailed article that appeared on the minghui.ca website (Chinese version of http://minghui.ca/mh/articles/2006/10/19/140569.html).
At around 6:00 p.m. on October 11th, 2006, four plainclothes policemen broke into the home of Falun Gong practitioner Cui Fengluan in Gaobeidian City, Hebei Province. They did not identify themselves and rummaged through the rooms like criminals. Li Zengxiang, Cui Fengluan's husband,who is not a practitioner, thought they were robbers and tried to stop them. But two of them beat Li Zengxiang and then pushed him into a waiting vehicle. When asked by several people, they just said they were police from the Fuqiang Road Police Station in Baigou Town, Gaobeidian City, Hebei Province. They said they wanted to search for Falun Gong materials. However, they did not show any identification and just broke into a resident's house and conducted an illegal search. They also beat the residents.
The crowd of onlookers was very indignant. Cui Fengluan escaped when they were not looking. To this day, she cannot return to her home. Li Zengxiang was detained until midnight. He was beaten by the police and was only released after his family sent 2000 yuan1 to Zheng Jiantao, the instructor of the police station.
