Charges Upheld Against India Actor-Politician

From Reuters

A court on Saturday upheld corruption charges against N.T. Rama Rao, a movie star turned politician and one of Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's bitterest political enemies.

The high court in the southern city of Hyderabad said Rama Rao abused his position of chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state to benefit his relatives.

The judgment did not say that Rama Rao used his office for personal profit, but it cited five cases where he helped relatives.
