Police Step Up Bollywood Probe

Indian police Tuesday raided the home of Indian film producer Bharat Shah a day after he was arrested on charges of using crime-syndicate money to finance Bollywood productions. The Times of India reported that six detectives descended on Shah's home in a posh area of Mumbai looking for additional evidence to link Shah, who is also a prominent diamond merchant, with the underworld. In the meantime, the newspaper said, Shah was removed from a local jail and admitted to the intensive care unit of a local hospital after complaining of chest pains while being questioned by police.
