Beijing, Sep 30 (IANS) A man on the run for 10 years after severely assaulting his wife has been found working as a prison guard in a Chinese city.
Authorities are now being asked as to how they hired a fugitive, the Shanghai Daily reported Friday.
The man in question, Wang Zhijia, allegedly beat up his wife with a brick and left her with severe head injuries at their home in Dengfeng city in Henan province in May 2001.
He disappeared soon after and travelled to Anhui province where he faked a new identity using his brother’s personal details.
Wang applied for the position of an auxiliary police officer with the public security bureau and was employed in 2008. Two months ago, he was transferred to work as a prison guard.
He has now been arrested.
