Developers in Shandong province have come up with a novel way of dealing with those stubborn ‘nail house‘ residents, just abduct them in their sleep.
A man surnamed Li has been arrested on suspicion of masterminding a scheme to abduct Zhang Shiqiang and his wife Cui Shemei and illegally demolishing their home. The couple were snatched by masked men while they slept on May 28, after which workers destroyed their home, along with possessions worth an estimated 500,000 yuan.
Zhang told reporters that he was woken up by a “breaking noise, when I turned on the lights a masked man put a bag over my head, and then four or five people carried me out of the house.”
The case is under investigation, authorities have said that those responsible will be “severely punished”.
