An Indian scam | Citizen Malhotra | Economist.com: "The rise and apparent fall of a favoured breakfast purveyor"

The modest van had launched Mr Malhotra's career, delivering chhole bhature, a curried-chickpea breakfast, to members of Delhi's state assembly. An amiable fellow, Mr Malhotra was hired to manage canteens in the assembly building, and also at the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), a state-government agency. The VIP cars are allegedly the fruits of the criminal career that ensued. Mr Malhotra, who was arrested this week, is accused of having made $1m-10m in a land scam in 2000-02.
