Beijing: A Chinese official with a local legislature in the country's central Henan province has been sacked and expelled from the Communist Party of China by the discipline inspection commission for involvement in a sex scandal.

Tian Hanwen has been removed from his post in the standing committee of People's Congress of Ruyang county in Henan province and expelled from the Communist Party of China, the discipline inspection commission in the city of Luoyang, which administers Ruyang, said in a statement today.
