A school official in northwest China's Shaanxi Province has been suspended while he is investigated over nude photos which appeared online, school authorities said on Wednesday.
A naked man resembling Qin Guogang, vice president of the Party School of the Shaanxi CPC Committee, appeared in photos spread online.
The photos were apparently stills from a video shot on Aug. 13, 2013 in the residence of a female postgraduate with whom Qin allegedly had sexual relations, said Qu Jianguo, the woman's lawyer.
Wang Jianzhong, the school's executive vice president, confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Qin has been suspended from his post and is under investigation.
Results of the investigation will be made public in due course.
