TOP STORY
Brother of Rajaratnam Is Indicted on Insider Trading Charges After earning degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University's business school, Rajarengan Rajaratnam pursued Wall Street riches, following in the footsteps of his oldest brother, the hedge fund titan Raj Rajaratnam. On Thursday, federal prosecutors said that Rajarengan was also part of his brother's insider trading ring, announcing criminal charges nearly two years after Raj was convicted and sentenced to 11 years in prison. "Now, Rengan's career arc has descended to the same place as his brother's did less than four years ago: defendant," said George Venizelos, an F.B.I. official in New York. Rajarengan, 42, who goes by Rengan, now lives in Brazil. Federal authorities have not yet arrested him on these charges, and are in the process of using extradition laws to return him to the United States.
