A local man in Minhe county, Gansu province was killed in a car accident on his way back home after he’d been handing over material disclosing information about corrupt local officials to the CDIC, China News Website reports. His family members firmly believe that the crash was deliberate and planned against him.
The victim’s father said that on September 16, his son had delivered documents implicating certain local officials’ involvement in gangs to the fourth inspection team of the CDIC in Gansu. One day after, his son had gone to deliver some more material, and on the way back, he was killed.
His father said that the other vehicle involved in the crash didn’t have a formal license plate and claims that the car insurance was bought one day before the accident happened.
The driver of the other car was reportedly a local policeman. He had been at work and asked to go on leave so that he could run some errands with his friends. They were going to go buy train tickets at the train station.
Traffic police in Guhong district made it clear that there was no foul play involved, and that it was just a ‘normal accident’. The report did not say whether an investigation was launched into claims made about the alleged corrupt officials.
