A second high-level official from Beijing has allegedly been detained as part of a corruption probe. The South China Morning Post reported that Zhou Liangluo, head of the Haidian district Government, was taken away by the Central Commission of Disciplinary Inspection last Friday. His detention follows the sacking of city vice-mayor Liu Zhihua. The two cases are allegedly unrelated but Zhou's is thought to be related to land corruption. Zhou's wife has also been detained. Zhou worked with the youth league at Tsinghua University for 10 years. He was appointed to the propaganda department in Chaoyang district in 1993 and in 2000 became the deputy head there. He was appointed to head Haidian district in 2002.
