    Russian citizen Mikhail Glukhov and his wife Jennifer Menezes, who were arrested in the Indian state of Goa on Wednesday, appear not to be implicated in any way in the MMM India Ponzi scheme, spokesman for the Russian company Andrei Kramar, who is currently in India, told ITAR-TASS.

    “Glukhov is not with MMM Indiaâ€, Kramar said. “He has discredited his name and betrayed MMM’s trust. First he worked in India as MMM India manager but we expelled him from our system back in March. Since then, he has worked on his own projects independently.â€

    The Mumbai police confirmed that the couple remained in custody. Both Glukhov and Menezes are suspected of operating a scam, though no official charges have been filed so far. “They have agreed to cooperate with the investigationâ€, a source in the local police told an ITAR-TASS correspondent, adding that “several dozen suspects’ accounts were frozen.â€

    Three Russian citizens: MMM’s Aleksei Muratov, his translator Denis Rozhkov and filmmaker Andrei Kilin, were detained in late May in Guwahati, Assam. According to various reports, between 100,000 and 500,000 people have invested in MMM India. The Russians’ Indian partners Dinesh Kotian and Rimish Balan of Mumbai and Nabajit Das of Assam were also arrested.

    The court is now hearing the cases of Rozhkov and Kilin. “It is highly likely that they will be released on bailâ€, Roman Vorobyev with the Russian Consulate General in Mumbai told ITAR-TASS.

    Aleksei Muratov is currently in hospital in Guwahati, having been admitted following a hunger strike. “He feels OKâ€, Kramar says. “No official charges have been brought against him or any other Russians so far. Muratov’s case will be heard on Friday, 5 July.â€

    Previously, the authorities of other Indian states, including Punjab and Andhra Pradesh, warned their residents of the MMM India Ponzi scheme. A standard investment in the scam was $90.
