Gong Gangmo, a gang leader and former sales manager of motorbike producer Yingang company, was given life imprisonment and fined 50.21 million yuan (US$7.36 million) for multiple felonies on Wednesday in southwest China's Chongqing municipality, reported.

Thirty-four gang members, including Gong, were handed various sentences by Chongqing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court for organizing a mafia-styled gang, intentional killing, illegally possessing and trading guns, as well as drug dealing.

On Tuesday, Li Zhuang, Gong's former lawyer, was sentenced to a year and a half for giving false evidence and encouraging others to give false evidence in Gong’s organized crime gang trial.
