NEW DELHI, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - A court in the Indian city of Mumbai refused again to release on bail two arrested Russians, who are suspected of creating a local branch of the pyramid scheme MMM (MMM-India). The court will hold the next session on August 13, a source in the Mumbai police told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Three Russians: Alexei Muratov, his interpreter Denis Rozhkov and film director Andrei Kilin, were detained in the MMM-India pyramid scheme case in the city of Guwahati, State Assam, at the end of May. They were taken into custody along with their expected Indian partners: Dinesh Kotian and Rimish Balan from Mumbai as well as Nabajit Das from the State Assam. Das died at the Mumbai prison overnight to Wednesday. None of them faced an official accusation yet. According to various estimates, from 100,000 to 500,000 people in total were affected by MMM-India.
Das, Rozhkov and Kilin have no relation to this illegal financial scheme, representatives of a branch of MMM said. “Das was involved in a charity mission, feeding the poor in Assam, Rozhkov translated and Kilin recorded this on film,” Andrei Kramar from the Russian MMM, who is currently in India as well. told Itar-Tass.
The court in Guwahati ruled to release Alexei Muratov on bail. He could not be transported to Mumbai due to poor health. Currently the suspect remains at large.
