Katira resigns from Hamilton Lane after assault charge: Wall Street Journal

This article has been updated and corrected to reflect the charge to which Katira ultimately pled guilty.

Tarang Katira, a 34-year old principal at Hamilton Lane, resigned from the firm ahead of a court hearing to face a criminal charge, the Wall Street Journal reported. Katira, who was based in London, was once regarded as rising star at Hamilton Lane, the story said.

(Update: Katira ultimately pled guilty to one charge of coercive and controlling behavior. In addition, an original sentence in the case of 22 months imprisonment was eventually shortened upon retrial.)
