Police offer reward for clues to official's murder

POLICE in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province are offering a reward of 50,000 yuan (US$ 7,316.8) for tips leading to them solving the murder of a local transport chief.

Li Xingguang, director of Hegang City Transport Bureau, was stabbed to death around 5pm on Monday at a residential quarters, the local government said yesterday.

Initial investigations show Li could have been murdered in retaliation for disputes, police told today's The Beijing News.

Police released an image of the suspect, a man in his 40s, as they announced the 50,000-yuan award.

They said the suspect was about 1.65 meters tall, overweight and wearing a dark jacket and T-shirt according to a security video. The knife he used was wrapped with a red plastic bag or a red towel.

Li had headed the transportation authority for nearly a decade and was involved in financial disputes with bureau employees and others, an unnamed official told The Beijing News.

One of the disputes involved investment by the city's bus terminal in a driving school, he disclosed.

The terminal collected 2 million yuan from its workers in 2006 to fund the project but lost the money, it was alleged.
