The Guangdong province doctor whose arrest and three-month detention for criticizing a well-known medicinal liquor brand sparked public outrage has been hospitalized with post-traumatic stress disorder following a recent interrogation session.

Tan Qindong was admitted to Guangdong General Hospital last week when he began showing symptoms that included insomnia and self-harm after being interrogated at a Guangzhou police station by police from the Inner Mongolia autonomous region on Friday, Tan’s wife, Liu Xuan, told Caixin.
