Preet Bharara is a naturalized American Attorney. He is presently the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.He is bold and fearless. He has treaded where mere mortals feared step into. He is very ruthless in his prosecution of offenders of state. He is one of the happening men in the outgoing U S President Barak Obama’s administration.
Bharara has earned a reputation as Crusader prosecutor who spares nothing to ensure that the law takes its toll on financial offenders no matter how highly placed the offender is. Take a look at his antecedents:
- He has prosecuted over 100 Wall Street executives; these are highly placed and very powerful people.
- The four largest banks in the U S at one point in time had an encounter with the fearless Bharara. He reached historic settlements with them- coming with attendant hefty fines.
- It is on record that he closed down multibillion dollar hedge funds for insider trading and other vices.
- He has prosecuted highly placed diplomats and people in other countries.
- He has prosecuted prominent New York State Politicians; he even threatened to prosecute Governor Andrew Cuomo for alleged corrupt practices.
The above represents the stuff that Bharara is made of. He belongs to the Democratic Party. He has been in office since August 13th 2009. With the loss at the polls by the Democratic Party to the Republican Party at the Presidential polls, ordinary logic points to the fact the Bharara’s tenure will end with Barak Obama leaving White house.
Then a master stroke was delivered by President elect, Donald Trump. After a meeting of the two; Bharara announced Trump has asked him to remain in office-he accepted the offer.
Bharara was born in the year 1968 in Ferozepur, India. His father is Sikh and mother is Hindu. He had his formative years in Eatontown in suburban Monmouth County, New Jersey. He is married. Other details are not available.
