India investigates stock market scam
The Indian Government has announced an all-party parliamentary investigation into the recent stock market scandal.

The scandal led to the resignation of two successive chiefs of the Bombay Stock Exchange and the arrest of one of the best-known Indian stock brokers, Ketan Parekh.

The Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Pramod Mahajan, said the investigating committee would look into allegations of insider trading and other irregularities.

The scandal caused a steep crash in share prices in Indian companies last month, shaking investor confidence.
