SHANGHAI, Oct 23: The head of Shanghai's commission supervising state-owned companies and one of his deputies has been detained in a widening corruption investigation, two government sources said today.

Lin Baoheng, director of the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the Shanghai city government, was detained at the weekend and was being questioned about suspected links to a scandal involving the city's social security funds, the sources said.

His deputy Wu Hongmei was also detained, the sources said.

A spokesman for the Shanghai city government said he had not heard of the detentions, while an official at Lin's offices said nobody there could comment. The government has often delayed announcing detentions related to the scandal or not revealed them at all.
