Interview with Subash Chandra Kapoor. By R. Ilangovan

When Frontline met Subash Chandra Kapoor on the Sessions Court premises at Jayamkondam in Ariyalur district in Tamil Nadu, on December 6, 2013, he spoke freely despite a close ring of armed guards around him.

A remand prisoner, he spoke for nearly 30 minutes in English with an American drawl. He said he never traded in stolen goods. His arrest, he claimed, was a part of an international conspiracy. When the judicial officer took the charges against him on file in the Suthamalli temple looting case, he urged him to read out the charges in English because he did not understand Tamil. He denied all the charges and pleaded not guilty.
