The prosecution of America’s largest insider-trading case yet appears to be a decidedly sepia-toned affair:
Whether by accident or design there prevails an interesting South Asian dimension to the [Rajaratnam] case. Three of those charged (Rajaratnam, Goel & Kumar) are of South Asian origin. So too is govt attorney Preet Bharara. Some sources of inside information for the accused are also of South Asian origin. The chief witness for the prosecution described as “Tipper A” has also been identified as Roomy Khan a woman of Bangla Deshi origin.
