    Ram's days as head of Tata

    Ram's days as head of TATA appeared numbered on Tuesday after the fraud news in the company became public.

    Is the above sentence Ok?

    I understand appeared numbered means " ram's tenure is about to over in the co". Am I right?

    I would reword the sentence: Ram's days as head of TATA appeared numbered on Tuesday after news of fraud in the company became public.

    Yes, it appears that Ram's career is about over.

    Does it means we don't use "fraud news"?

    We don't use "fraud news in the company".
