Zhang Huawei, one of the most senior inspectors with China's top anti-graft body, is under investigation for suspected disciplinary violations, an euphemism for corruption.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection issued a one-sentence statement on its website on Monday saying the official "had seriously violated Party discipline".

According to Capitalnews, the WeChat account of Beijing Daily, Zhang is one of the most senior disciplinary officials suspected of corruption and is the only head of a national inspection team to be investigated.

He took part in at least seven inspections between 2013 and 2015, either as deputy head or head of the inspection team, according to information on the CCDI website. These teams were stationed at major organizations and companies, including Renmin University of China, China Guodian Corp and the General Administration of Sport.
