Police in southwestern China’s Guizhou province are suspected of colluding with local businesses after three doctors were detained for alleged medical insurance fraud.

The detention of the physicians, now on supervised release pending a trial, have stoked concerns that police may have been favoring powerful state-owned firms by stifling critics of the businesses.
