Good if he is arrested, But i dont care of that What i want is all that MONEY to be taken Back, I dont think in india as in UK arrest and spending time in JAIL matters at all, but what hurts the most is TAKING what is back, and the only way to hit them back is confiscate all there property , and of the people around them ..

Put them on ROAD so start all over again .. Them there Kids, there relatives ALL confiscated..
