Insider trading charges boosted

NEW YORK (AP) — Federal prosecutors boosted their insider trading charges case Tuesday against the man they say was behind history's largest hedge fund insider trading case.

The rewritten indictment accuses Galleon Group founder Raj Rajaratnam of making up to $45 million from trades based on secrets.

The indictment adds two securities fraud charges against Rajaratnam.

Rajaratnam, 52, remains free on $100 million bail.
