Two police officers have been arrested for allegedly beating a college student to death in a nightclub in Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province, AP reported. Harbin police announced the arrests of Liu Linan and Qi Xin, who were identified as officers with the Harbin police’s railway division. Four other officers were investigated for their role in a fight outside of the city’s Candy Bar disco on October 11 that led to the death of Lin Songling, a 22-year-old student at a physical education university. One of Lin’s classmates, Yang Sen, was also arrested. Anger over Lin’s death has been fueled by the release, by police, of security camera footage that showed the fight between students and the off-duty policemen at the club.
