The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the Centre and the Delhi government on the plea of conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is facing several cases of corruption under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Money Laundering Act seeking that he be shifted from the Mandoli jail to any other prison in the country, as reported by the news agency PTI.
A two-judge bench comprising Justices Ajay Rastogi and CT Ravikumar was hearing two separate petitions of Chandrashekhar. The bench asked him to move a representation to jail authorities on increasing the visiting hours with his lawyers. Chandrashekhar claimed that he was assaulted in Mandoli jail, which is evident from his medical records, and said that he is facing a threat to life in the prison.
Chandrashekhar’s counsel said after his disclosure statements that Rs 10 crore was allegedly extorted by Delhi’s Jail minister Satyendra Jain, he is facing a threat to his life in jail. However, the AAP has denied the allegations. He said 28 cases are pending against him in six cities across the country and for that he needs to meet his lawyers for 60 minutes every day as against the 30 minutes each twice a week provided under the Delhi Prison Rules.
Earlier in November, Chandrasekhar released a letter in which he alleged that he was ready to be hanged if any of the issues he has raised to Delhi LG turned out to be wrong. In his press letter provided by his lawyer, Sukesh said, “(Delhi CM) Kejriwal Ji, if any of my raised issues to Delhi LG turn out to be wrong as you and your associates said, I am ready to be hanged. But if the complaint is proven true, you will resign and retire from politics for good.”
He also alleged that Aam Adami Party’s Satyendar Jain asked him to pay money to the party for the Goa and Punjab elections. “I kept quiet and ignored everything but due to your constant threats and pressure through the Jail administration and Mr. Jain asking me to give funds during Punjab and Goa polls, brazenly even though I was undergoing investigation,” Sukesh wrote.
Rejecting the AAP’s allegations that he was lying, Sukesh Chandrasekar said if he was lying then why the jail administration was pressurising him or being coerced to withdraw his earlier complaint?
“Kejriwalji why was Mr. Jain constantly asking me to withdraw the complaint filed in HC against former DG Sandeep Goel and the Jail administration? Why was I constantly threatened apart from asking me to give more funds for your election Campaigns? Why afraid of inquiry? What are you scared off if you are truthful?” he said in his letter.
Chandrashekar rejected the allegations of AAP leaders that he was trying to malign the image of the party and its leaders at the behest of the BJP ahead of the Delhi MCD elections.
“Kejriwalji don’t keep saying all this is being done because of elections, let me tell you something and give to a piece of advice. You know me very well. You and Mr. Jain are among the few people, who know me very well so, don’t hallucinate that won’t give evidence against all that I have said or won’t testify. I will give every single thing that I have, which you know very well, as your mask has to be removed in open. Please Kejriwalji don’t daydream about winning elections as people are seeing everything, your Drama won’t work anymore, your karma, your lies, you will be defeated badly for sure,” he further wrote.
