Satyam Computer Services scam kingpin B Ramalinga Raju, who was once the poster boy of ITes industry, is now the convict number 4148 in Cherlapally Central Prison here where he was shifted along with nine others this evening, following their conviction in the Rs 7000 crore accounting fraud.

Earlier in the day, B Ramalinga Raju and others were sentenced to seven years rigorous imprisonment by a special court after it found them guilty of criminal conspiracy and cheating among other offences in the scam, and also imposed a Rs 5.5 crore fine on them.

Following the verdict, all the 10 Satyam scam convicts were taken into custody by CBI and were later shifted to the facility at around 6.30 PM, jail officials said.

While B Ramalinga Raju is prisoner number 4148, Rama Raju 4147.

        Now firmly in jail, Mr B Ramalinga Raju must think of contributing to India's prosperity, a very good technocrat he is. That may wash out his sin to a large extent and he may be liked by others as before. Govt. of India should not feel shy of accepting his service otherwise which may go waste.
