Jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar has sent a fresh letter to Delhi LG VK Saxena, demanding an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into his allegations of threat and pressure from jailed AAP minister Satyendar Jain.
He also demanded that the enquiry should also ascertain former Tihar jail director general Sandeep Goel’s role in providing preferential treatment to the minister inside the jail.
Earlier, Chandrashekar had written an open letter to the media alleging, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal took ₹50 crores from him in the promise of a Rajya Sabha seat. He had alleged that Kejriwal contacted him through Jain.
After his first letter, Tihar DG Sandeep Goel was removed from his post and was ordered to report to Delhi Police headquarters.
In his latest letter, the conman alleged that he has been getting “severe threats” from the jail administration on behalf of Jain and sacked DG.
“…that now I will be taught a serious lesson, and also I will be shown stars by AAP party workers when produced to courts, for what I have done. They said I will have to pay the price now,” he said, listing out the alleged threats.
In his previous complaint, Chandrasekhar claimed that he paid ₹10 crores to Jain and ₹12.50 crores to Goel as “protection money” for preferential treatment in the jail.
“I am (not) intimidated by them, but requesting to direct the CBI to initiate an urgent investigation in detail and allow me to file FIR for the same, as the pressure is getting too much and any undue event may take place, before that the truth about AAP should be exposed, as the matter is not only about Satyender Jain but also Arvind Kejriwal and Kailash Gahlot are also a part of all the episodes that have taken place,” the letter reads.
“The matter is much more than what meets the eye, I have in the month of August 2022 itself have given a part statement regarding the same to CBI AC-V during the probe of some other case of mine,” Chandrasekhar added.
He reiterated his claim that Kejriwal took ₹50 crores from him to expand AAP in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, alleging that he was instrumental in former Bengaluru police commissioner Bhaskar Rao’s AAP joining.
Responding to Kejriwal’s allegation that he was being used by the BJP in view of the Assembly elections, Chandrasekhar wrote: “If I was country’s biggest thug, then why during 2016 when I personally delivered ₹50 crores to Mr Satyender Jain in presence of Mr Kailash Gahlot in his farm at Asola, and thereafter the same evening Mr Arvind Kejriwal and Mr Jain had visited me for dinner at Hyatt, Bikaji Kama Place where I was staying.”
He also alleged that CM Kejriwal asked him to bring at least 20 people from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu who can give at least ₹500 crores.
“After a few months (of the meeting), I introduced Mr Bhaskar Rao, who was looking to join politics after his stint as a police officer, to Mr Kejriwal. Rao is known to me as his daughter Rania Rao was a close friend of mine since my school days in Bangalore.”
Chandrasekhar, who is lodged in the Tihar jail in a ₹200 crores extortion case, said that the former police commissioner was made the AAP chief in Karnataka. “Which was because of me, and they are all one now,” he wrote.
