SummaryTop federal prosecutor Preet Bharara has termed Rajat Gupta's 2-year sentence a 'sad occasion'.

served as an official at the World Bank for 30 years and had been a character witness at Gupta's trial, said the appeal in the case will be the next thing that Gupta would focus on.

He said Gupta's friends and family were praying for the best as they awaited the sentencing.

While Gupta's sentence is a lot less than the 8-10 years that the prosecution was seeking, Sood said two years in prison is "still a lot" for a person who has had a remarkable life so far.
