Illegal detention lands Chinese woman in police custody


10:09, May 26, 2012

HANGZHOU, May 25 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese woman has been taken into police custody for illegally detaining an Indian man following a debt dispute in Yiwu, a city in east China's Zhejiang Province, local authorities confirmed Friday.

At 2 p.m. Wednesday, police freed Danish Qureshi, a purchaser working for an Indian businessman named Faisal, from his illegal detention, according to the press office of the Yiwu municipal government.

Qureshi was in good health, and he left the public security department after being questioned by police.

The Chinese woman surnamed Wang, 30, and her boyfriend illegally detained Qureshi at Wang's home starting early Monday morning after Wang's requests for Faisal, who lives in India, to repay his debts to her went ignored.

In late 2009, Faisal hired Wang and one of her classmates to purchase goods in Yiwu, the world's largest wholesale market for small consumer goods.

As of August 2011, Faisal had defaulted on service fees of 50,000 yuan (about 7,900 U.S. dollars) and payments for goods valued at 400,000 yuan, which Wang and her classmate paid for with their own savings.

Wang's several attempts to contact Faisal via e-mail and phone went unanswered.

On March 9, she learned that Qureshi had been sent to Yiwu. She went to him for help in obtaining the money owed to her by Faisal, but received no results.

Early Monday morning, Wang and her boyfriend held Qureshi in Wang's apartment and called Faisal about the debt.

There was no physical confrontation during the illegal detention, according to the press office of Yiwu.
