TOP INDIAN BUSINESSMAN SURRENDERS IN FRAUD CASE

NEW DELHI -A top Indian businessman surrendered to police Friday after failing to show up in court on charges that his company failed to return billions of dollars to investors.


The Indian Supreme Court issued an arrest warrant for Sahara India chief Subrata Roy after he was a no-show in court Wednesday.

Roy turned himself in on Friday in Lucknow, the Uttar Pradesh state capital, and missed the court date because his mother was ill, according to his son and Sahara director son Samantha Roy.

Sahara is well-known throughout India because it sponsors the Indian cricket team. The company has interests in microfinance, media and entertainment, tourism, health care and real estate including the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan and London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

The Indian securities regulator has accused Roy's group of raising nearly 200 billion rupees ($3.2 billion) through bonds that were later found to be illegal.

Sahara India says its liability was much less and it already has repaid many investors directly.

Samantha Roy told reporters in New Delhi on Friday that his father would abide by the law and respect the court's rulings.

Police visited Roy's home in Lucknow on Thursday to arrest him, but couldn't find him there.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
