    May I recommend that for such reports brief facts of the case and issues involved also be included in such news reports as even after reading this one is unclear about the type of fraud involved and related details together with allegations and any defense point of view. This in my view should be standard practice as many readers are not already in the loop and may have read for the first time on the story or matter. And while i have been reading your hard copy newspaper since many years and in the early days of launching of daily English Express Tribune & its INYT pages i devoted considerable time in acquainting myself to its contents, formats, sections etc. But the experience to use the web news stories has been better as to its content and coverage as well as ease of access in finding similar related news reports quickly as compared to hard copy edition.
