New Delhi: Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar has written a third letter to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena from Tihar Jail alleging that Aam Aadmi Party leader Satyendar Jain took Rupees 50 thousand crores from him. In his letter to the LG, Chandrashekhar asked, “Why did Satyendar Jain take Rupees 50 crore from me if I am a thug.”
“I request you to direct an urgent CBI investigation & allow me to file FIR as the pressure is getting too much& any undue event may take place before the truth about AAP is exposed,” he said. The letter came just days after the conman wrote a second handwritten letter to the LG on November 4 alleging that he was forced to pay Rs 10 crore protection money to AAP leader Satyendar Jain earlier when he held the portfolio of Jail.
In his letter he had stated: “After my arrest in 2017 for the two leaf corruption case I was lodged in Tihar jail and was visited by Mr. Satyender Jain who holds the Portfolio of Jail minister multiple times. Thereafter in 2019 again I was visited by Satyendar Jain along with his secretary and his close friend Mr Sushil in jail and asked me to pay Rs 2 crores every month as protection money to live safely in jail.”
“He asked me to pay Rs 1.50 crore to DG prison Sandeep Goel. He forced me to pay a total amount of Rs 10 crores in a matter of 2 to 3 months was extorted for me through constant pressure. Hence a total amount of Rs 10 crore was paid to Mr Satyender Jain and Rs 12.50 crore to DG prison Sandeep Goel. (sic),” he had further written in his letter.
In his first letter to the LG, Chandrashekhar had accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of forcing him to bring 20-30 individuals to contribute Rs 500 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party in return for seats and party postings. Chandrashekhar was arrested for allegedly defrauding and extorting several high-profile individuals, including Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh.
In April last year, Chandrashekhar was arrested in another money laundering case linked to the 2017 Election Commission bribery case, which allegedly involved a former AIADMK leader among others.
