The police launched their investigation after they received a tip-off from the public on the suspect's actions. Haidian police have identified the Weibo user as a 30-year-old man surnamed Pan, read a police notice on Monday.

Pan left Beijing and went overseas on February 2, 2020. Haidian police urged Pan to return to the country and cooperate with the investigation.

Police will resolutely crack down on acts of defaming, slandering and other misconduct that harms the honor of the martyrs, the Haidian police said.
