Sarajevo: Authorities in Bosnia have detained four people as part of an ongoing investigation into an Indian businessman.
Prosecutors in the central town of Tuzla said Tuesday the suspects with alleged links to Pramod Mittal are suspected of organized crime and abuse of position and authority. They say police have searched several locations looking for evidence.
