The prison game


It looks like the head of a major chit-fund company in India will have to spend a lot more time behind the bars. The Enforcement Directorate has found two of the company’s top executives involved in Hawala scam. As a result, both of them are seeing intensive investigation being done against them. Recently, Scotland Yard grabbed hold of the company head’s private secretary at a London airport with a lot of cash money. At present, action is being taken against the man under the British Law. The Income Tax Department has also confiscated a large amount of cash at the imprisoned man’s residence in Delhi. Sources say his wife and son have got the citizenship for Macedonia, a small Balkan country adjoining Greece, while his younger son made for Portugal. Moreover, a few prominent ministers in the Modi government at the Centre are ready to lend any help to the family so that his stay in prison can be made as luxurious as possible.
