Sukesh Chandrashekhar who is currently lodged in Delhi’s Mandoli jail had earlier written a fresh letter to Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena seeking a CBI probe against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others for alleged threat and corruption. Chandrashekhar had also alleged that he had received “severe threat” from the jail administration on behalf of AAP leader Satyendar Jain and then DG Prisons Sandeep Goel.
Chandrashekhar had also alleged that AAP leader Jain extorted Rs 10 crore in 2019 in exchange of his safety in the prison. The alleged conman later issued a “press release” from the jail, alleging that in 2016 he had delivered Rs 50 crore to Jain at his farmhouse in Asola, after which Kejriwal and others visited him in hotel ‘Hyatt’ for dinner.
