BEIJING, April 18 -- Liu Zhigeng, former vice governor of southern China's Guangdong Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from public office for multiple offenses including graft and "practicing superstitious activities."

"Liu severely violated political discipline and rules," the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement on Monday.

He obstructed disciplinary investigations and had long been "practicing superstitious activities," the statement said, without elaborating.

Liu took advantage of his post to seek profits for others and accepted bribes, the statement said.

He connived with his relatives, allowing them to use his influence to seek profits for themselves. He traded his power for sex and squandered public property, according to the CCDI.

He also flouted frugality rules introduced at the end of 2012 by frequenting private clubs.

Liu's case will be handed over to prosecutors, it said.

The CCDI announced it was investigating the 60-year-old in February.
