Hyderabad, Jan 13: Disgraced ex CEO of Satyam Ramalinga Raju is perhaps seeking divine intervention. According to a jail official, Raju has started to read books on Gautam Buddha. Raju is in third day of jail life.
His son Teja Raju brought him the books with his lawyer Bharat Kumar. His son gave him some fruits and spent half an hour with his father. "He (Ramalinga) is not mingling with anyone. He is spending time by himself. Since he seems to prefer solitude, the other inmates are also not taking the initiative to strike a conversation with him," a jail official said. "He is really very downcast," said another jail official.
Ramalinga Raju's brother Ramaraju, CFO V Srinivas and two bootleggers are his fellow companions in jail. Teja Raju, who heads Satyam group company Maytas was the first visit of a family member to Ramalinga Raju. As per the procedure, during 'mulaqat', a visitor can talk to the inmates from behind grills. Teja was permitted entry into the jail though not into the barracks where Ramalinga Raju is lodged.
His lawyer could spend more time with Raju. "We discussed the case," Bharat Kumar said after a three-hour meeting with Raju. The advocate had earlier filed a bail plea for Raju in the Nampally criminal court. Vadlamani Srinivas' wife also visited the jailed ex-Satyam CFO.
Many visitors wanted to meet Raju. But authorities did not allow them. However, a visitor gave some books and greeting cards to the sentry asking him to hand over those things to Raju.
