His brother, Radhakrishnan has become immensely successful and influential, mostly through the process of bagging large government contracts through illegal methods like bribery. He has also become extremely wealthy in a short period of time by using poor quality materials in construction. In his insatiable greed for wealth, Radhakrishnan stops at nothing, not even murder.
