Wang Xiaolin, former deputy director of the National Energy Administration, has been arrested, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Further investigation is underway as he is suspected of taking bribes, according to a statement issued by the people's procuratorate of Hebei Province.

Born in October 1963, Wang was appointed to the position at the administration in 2015 after working at Shenhua Group, China's largest coal producer, for about 20 years.

He was expelled from the Communist Party of China and public office in April.
