A university in Wuhan, Hubei province came under investigation after it was reported that the school had been operating a brothel on campus that offered discounted prostitution services to its students.
Some students from Wuchang Polytechnic School, likely now the least popular kids in class, told local police that a hotel next to their dorm was offering paid sex services to students on campus.
They claimed that the hotel, which was run as school property, featured a foot bath club that promoted “special services” and even offered a discount to people who showed their student ID cards. Score.
Investigative reporters from the Beijing Times confirmed (without offering much detail as to how) that the hotel did, in fact, host prostitutes. Adding to the scandal, it was later revealed that the hotel was owned by the university principal’s brother-in-law.
The special foot bath club, as China Daily kindly calls it, has been closed down and its management taken in for investigation.
This isn’t the first time police have busted a brothel on school grounds. Last year in April, officers in Shanghai arrested over 30 people in a raid on six such facilities operating across the road from a middle school.
