Professor kills party executive at Fudan University


Beijing (AP) — Police and school officials have announced that a professor has killed the Communist Party general secretary at a prestigious Fudan University math school in China.

Police have identified the detained suspect as a 39-year-old professor whose surname is Jiang, alleging that he used a knife to commit a crime on a school campus in Shanghai.

The school said in a brief statement that Mr. Wang Yongzhen, 49, was killed on Monday afternoon and set up a working group to fully cooperate with police investigations.

Police said in a statement that Jiang had a grudge against the king and pleaded guilty to him. Fudan was in another murder case in 2013 when a graduate student poisoned his roommate after a controversy. It became the stage.

Party secretaries are ubiquitous on Chinese campuses, maintaining ideological purity, preventing the spread of Western concepts on human rights and free speech, and ensuring that students and faculty remain loyal to the party.

Fudan University is ranked as one of the top 100 universities in the world with strong overseas ties, although its ties with China’s ruling Communist Party are controversial.

Thousands of people met on Saturday in the Hungarian capital, opposed the agreement with Hudan and opposed opening a branch in the city.
