INDIA'S RELIANCE INVESTIGATES: The AFP reported India’s largest private company, Reliance Industries, said Tuesday that it "was investigating how costly World Cup tickets it had bought ended up on the Brazilian black market." Match Hospitality said that 59 tickets bearing Reliance’s name "were found." The firm said, “We at Reliance always comply with all rules and regulations and are unaware of any such incident. We are investigating the same.” Reliance "identified the company through which it had bought the tickets as Octagon but said it was unable to divulge further details about them, such as where they were located." Reliance said, “We have appointed them [Octagon] as our agents to buy some hospitality packages. They have been handling the tickets and the packages” (AFP, 7/8).
