Rajat Gupta

Rajat Gupta, who sat on boards at some of the most influential companies in the U.S., was charged in October with helping his friend Raj Rajaratnam carry out his ill-fated insider trading scheme. The Federal Bureau of Investigation contends that Gupta illegally leaked inside information about firms where he'd been a director - including Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble - to Rajaratnam's Galleon Group hedge fund. Gupta is the most prominent businessman to be ensnared in the government's aggressive fight to root out insider trading.
