Two hundred people were said to have attended the event, which was held on 16 August.
The Beijing News said the event was later revealed by a Chinese TV station. The leaders of five striptease troupes were held, it said, including two involved in the farmer’s funeral.
“Striptease used to be a common practice at funerals in Donghai’s rural areas to allure viewers,” Xinhua agency said.
“Local villagers believe that the more people who attend the funeral, the more the dead person is honoured.”
