Bharti Walmart suspends CFO
Wal-Mart Stores Inc's Indian joint venture has suspended its chief financial officer and other employees as it investigates alleged violations of U.S. anti-bribery laws, a Reuters report has stated.

This could hamper the US giants ability to set up operations in the country, at a time when the government has allowed FDI in multi-brand retail despite fierce opposition from political parties.
