In the station, police continued to beat him. Then put him in a car with head covered, dropped him in mountains.

Police warned him:”I will kill you if you come back to Beijing again”.

LIU found a bus and came back to Beijing in the morning. When Boxun reporter called his friend, he was having lunch with supporters, including the famous Ai Weiwei.

LIU told Boxun that he feels faint when stands up. He will go to hospital to check the injury. His head was kicked by police.

LIU has been very active to help victims, including the famous case-Li Ruirui, who was raped by guard in black jail in last summer.
