Looking at the orbital data from spacetrack it seems the CZ-7  2nd stage
made several orbital changes before deploying the other objects.

Object A                  2016 Jun 25.69       40.81       91.22       6713
       287          381          0.007       175
Object B                  2016 Jun 25.69       40.80       91.22       6711
       289          376          0.007       176
Object C                  2016 Jun 25.81       40.80       90.32       6668
       200          379          0.013       173
Object D                  2016 Jun 25.81       40.80       90.28       6667
       200          377          0.013       173
Object E                  2016 Jun 25.80       40.80       90.33       6669
       203          378          0.013       174
Object F                  2016 Jun 25.80       40.81       90.33       6669
       202          379          0.013       173
Object G                  2016 Jun 25.74       40.65       92.13       6758
       198          561          0.027       155
Object H                  2016 Jun 25.75       40.47       92.32       6766
       198          578          0.028       162
Object J                   2016 Jun 25.74       41.17       92.42
6771        199          586          0.029       176
Object K                  2016 Jun 25.74       40.98       92.43       6772
       196          591          0.029       182

3 groups: A+B; C-F and G-K

Lets see what these objects are.
G-K could be covers ejected from the 2nd stage as seen with other CZ
launches, but the inclinations vary a lot and the apogee's are quite high.
