Former Railways Minister Liu Zhijun is still under investigation, said a senior official with the discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Wednesday.

Wu Yuliang, deputy secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC, made the remarks at a press conference on the CPC's efforts to fight corruption.

The CPC discipline watchdog said in February that Liu was being investigated for alleged "severe violation of discipline," and the national legislature dismissed him from his post of railways minister later that month.

Liu became the railways minister in March 2003.
