Wang Gongquan, a 52-year-old venture capitalist, was taken into custody at noon by around 20 policemen, according to Teng Biao, a Beijing-based rights activist and lawyer.
Police claimed Mr Wang was “suspected of committing the crime of disturbing [public] order”, Prof. Teng said.
But friends say Mr Wang is the latest victim of an ongoing government crackdown and believe he is being punished for speaking out in defence of his friend, the jailed activist Xu Zhiyong.
