Now, Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar Seeks Transfer To Jail Outside Delhi
New Delhi: In his latest letter to Delhi Lt Governor VK Saxena, conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar sought his transfer to a jail outside the national Capital.
Chandrashekhar, who sent the letter via his lawyer Ashok Singh, claimed that jail officers were asking him to withdraw the complaint he has filed against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its leaders, Hindustan Times reported.
Chandrashekhar is currently lodged in Mandoli jail, which is under Delhi government’s jurisdiction. He was initially in Tihari jail.
“My client has received several threats and pressure to withdraw complaints filed before your good office against AAP, Satyendar Jain, Arvind Kejriwal and Kailash Gehlot, and also to retract statements given to EOW (Economic Offences Wing) and ED (Enforcement Directorate) during the investigation… His wife is also being threatened and abused by the senior jail officers,” stated the letter signed by Singh on Chandrashekhar’s behalf.
“I hold very important evidence against them and they are very well aware of it and will go to any extent to cause harm to me and my wife,” Chandrashekhar said in the note.
The 33-year-old Chandrashekhar, accused in a Rs 200-crore extortion and money-laundering case, also requested his wife Leena Poulose to be transferred out of Mandoli jail.
Last month, the Supreme Court rejected his petition for transfer to a prison outside Delhi.
