Narendra Tulsiram, 50, of the Bronx, has been sentenced in Manhattan federal court to 25 years jail, for sexually exploiting a child for nearly five years and transporting and possessing images of child pornography.

For 5 years Tulsiram preyed on his victim. The abuse began when the victim was 13 years old.
He took sexually explicit photographs of his abuse of the minor girl and in 2011 after the girl resisted his requests for additional sexual encounters, sent them to her via e-mails with threats of sharing them with others including her family.
The threatening e-mails and obscene pictures of Tulsiram with the girl were found following a forensic analysis of his cell phone after his arrest.

Report dated 25/06/2014 @ 12:57 PM
An unnamed NRI age 31 and his Bahraini accomplice, posed as police officers and kidnapped and robbed an NRI labourer last September. They took the man to the desert, tied him up and covered his face before stealing two mobile phones and 360 dinars, then abandoned him.
Both men have been convicted of theft, assault, kidnap and impersonating officers and they have each been sentenced to 15 years in jail. The NRI is to be deported on completion of his sentence.
Prosecutors say the suspects also stole around 10,000 dinars by randomly targeting expatriates in Bahrain in December 2013. The NRI who was employed in the Bahrain interior ministry for 9 years said he carried out the crimes because he needed money, and after he quit his job he and his friend drew up plans to kidnap and rob people in the country.
US NRI admits role in $200 million credit card fraud
Report dated 21/06/2014 @ 12:52 PM
Businessman Vinod Dadlani, 51, of New Jersey, has admitted to his role in a huge credit card fraud scheme that involved $200 million in losses to businesses and financial institutions, and now faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
Dadlani who owns a jewellery store, used his business to further one of the largest credit card frauds ever charged by the Justice Department, and is the 17th conspirator to plead guilty in the case.
He was indicted in 2013 as part of a conspiracy to fabricate over 7000 false identities to obtain tens of thousands of credit cards which they doctored to pump up the spending and borrowing power associated with the cards. They then borrowed or spent as much as they could, based on the phony credit history, but did not repay the debts that were incurred at Dadlani's store and other locations, where he would allow fraudulently obtained cards to be swiped in phony transactions.
Across the country Dadlani's conspirators maintained over 1800 'drop addresses' including apartments, and post office boxes, which they used as the mailing addresses for the false identities. He would then split the proceeds of the phony transactions with his conspirators.
Dadlani is scheduled for sentencing in September.
