The Chaoyang District People's Procuratorate of Beijing on Monday approved the arrest of Zhang Tao, former Party secretary and chairman of China Aerospace Investment Holdings, on suspicion of intentional injury.

China Aerospace Investment Holdings is a subsidiary investment company of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. According to a circular issued by the corporation earlier on Monday, Zhang also was expelled from the Party and dismissed from his post.

According to a release from Chaoyang District police on July 5, Zhang and two scientists —Wang Jinnian, 54, and Wu Meirong, 85 — had dinner in a restaurant on June 6. Zhang and Wang had a quarrel after consuming alcohol.

Later, Zhang and his colleagues were sending Wang and Wu back to their community, and Zhang and Wang quarreled again.

Then Zhang repeatedly kicked and beat Wang. During this time, Wu was pulled down on the ground while trying to stop the fight. Then Wu went to the hospital for treatment due to physical discomfort, while Wang rested at home.

On June 12, Wang reported the case to police at the Olympic Village Police Station of Chaoyang Public Security Sub-bureau.

Wu is still hospitalized following the incident. And on July 5, the judicial appraisal institution concluded Wang received a secondary minor injury based on the results of a re-examination.

According to the facts and injury identification, the Chaoyang Public Security Sub-bureau detained Zhang.

The corporation suspended Zhang on July 5, and said in a statement that it has already sent a team to investigate the incident. It will deal with the matter seriously based on what is uncovered.
