How much surprised you would be if some of the leading business men in India go missing without any warning or trace only to re-appear later. This is a reality in China where some of the leading businessmen have suddenly disappeared whilst some have re-appeared later and the fate of the rest is unknown yet.

What has been the reason behind the disappearance?

According to unconfirmed media reports in China, it is part of a government’s anti-corruption drive targeting the financial sector. As part of the anti-corruption drive the police have picked up some of the leading businessmen of China without prior notice or media briefing. The sudden disappearances have often caused stock markets to shed its value. The effects of the reverberations in the Chinese stocks markets are felt across stock market in the world and more particularly in Asia.

Who are the businessmen who have gone missing?

1.) Zhou Chengjian
