A police cell.
According to the Daily Mail India Trikha was arrested when he arrived at Delhi airport, following charges laid against him by a variety of victims.
"A lookout notice was issued for him since he was on the run since 2011. He was arrested at the Delhi airport while trying to flee to Nepal," said Syed Waqar Raza, special superintendent of police, West Bengal CID.There's a even a report that his entire family are under investigation for their role in the fraud.
It's just a shame it's too late for his various victims. It's a shame that the the people running the scheme in Botswana weren't all made to pay back the money they knowingly took from other victims.
It's also a shame that the authorities in Botswana didn't follow the examples of their cousins in Namibia, Lesotho, the US State of Georgia, Indonesia, Australia and South Africa and DID something to protect their people.

"Knowingly"? Isn't that going too far? They knew they were involved in a scam? They didn't recognise a pyramid scheme when they saw it? When they were involved in it? When the clues were so obvious that it was a scam? Even to the TVI Express recruiters here in Botswana like the ones that appeared on radio opposing me and proceeded to lie, distort and makes fools of themselves.
|Which part of this does NOT look like a pyramid scheme?|
Ok, "knowingly or stupidly".
The tragedy is that are no doubt TVI Express organisers still out there imagining that they'll get their money and effort back somehow.
