Andaleeb Sehgal, 35, paid kickbacks to Saddam Hussein, says Volcker Report. Sehgal, son of Delhi businessman Suman Sehgal, studied at Lawrence School, Sanawar, and St Stephen's College, Delhi. He married Suhani Kumari, daughter of Vijendra and Raymon Singh. Vijendra's mother was the princess of Patiala and is the aunt of Natwar Singh's wife. Vijendra has been a Congress MLA from Nalagarh. Raymon is the grand-daughter of Sir Soba Singh, author Khushwant Singh's father.

Andaleeb Sehgal, is Natwar Singh's son's (Jagat Singh) childhood friend.

I would like someone to get to the bottom of this. It is quite unlike Stephanians of any era to behave in this manner. We are taught better values than THIS.
