BEIJING -- Wang Baoan, head of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), is being investigated for "severe disciplinary violation," according to the top anti-graft body of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Wang, 52, is also the secretary of the leading Party group of NBS, said a statement released late Tuesday by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
