68-year old Zeng Huanjia of Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province poured gasoline over himself and set himself on fire in front of his home on Yingbin Road,

At about 3:15 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2010, 68-year old Zeng Huanjia of Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province poured gasoline over himself and set himself on fire in front of his home on Yingbin Road, causing extensive burns. He was sent to Shanghai Reijin Hospital for treatment and his condition is still critical.

At about 3:00 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2010, three policemen from the local public security bureau came to subpoena Zeng Huanjia’s eldest son, who was not at home. They met Zeng Huanjia who had just come home. The policemen stopped him at the door and told him: “If your son does not show up, we will force him to go.” Zeng did not want to accept the subpoena notice, so he said: “you are pushing me to death.” Then he ran out into the road and set himself on fire.

Policemen Standby without Helping

Mrs. Sun, Zeng’s neighbor, told The Epoch Times: “I was at home when I heard screams outside. We went out and saw him on fire. There were many people surrounding him. I called 110 (emergency number) for help. I was shaking.”

Mr. Shang, Zeng Huanjia’s son-in-law, said, “When Zeng’s youngest son went out, Zeng was already on fire. He yelled for help, so four of us rushed out to extinguish the fire. The three policemen were watching from behind. It took us a while to put out the fire, about 30 minutes. Later one of the policemen who had just graduated from school got a fire extinguisher. The other two stood aside and stole the subpoena notice that was left at our home.”….. (more details from The Epochtimes)
