‘Can’t breathe’: Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar who ran extortion racket from jail says he’s being harassed at Tihar

Sukesh Chandrashekhar wrote he is not allowed to talk to anyone at Tihar jail. No other inmates are allowed to talk to him.
Alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, accused of several cases of cheating, extortion and money laundering amounting to hundreds of crores has now approached the Patiala House Court saying that he is being mentally troubled and pressurised in Tihar jail, ANI reported. In a hand-written application, the businessman told the court that four CCTVs are always watching and he is double locked. “I can’t walk inside my prison when I am double-locked and can’t breathe properly too,” Sukesh’s application stated.
Chief metropolitan magistrate Dr Pankaj Sharma heard his grievance as Sukesh was produced at the court in connection with another cheating case. The metropolitan magistrate asked Sukesh’s advocates to move a formal application in the court. In his plea, the conman also wrote that he is not allowed to speak to anyone and other inmates at Tihar are not allowed to speak to him.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar is linked to several high-profile fraud cases, the latest being duping the spouses of former promoters of Ranbaxy, Shivinder Singh, and Malvinder Singh, of 200 crore. One of his earlier cases was duping an AIADMK leader of 2 crore on the pretext of helping his party retain its two leaves symbol by bribing the Election Commission.

Actors Jacqueline Fernandez, Nora Fatehi have also been linked with the businessman as they have received expensive gifts from him.

Running extortion racket from Tihar jail

Investigation into the 200 crore extortion revealed that it took place when Sukesh was in Rohini jail. Paying hefty money to jail officers, Chandrashekhar was operating the racket and living inside the jail like a ‘king’. Reports said he was given an entire barrack and was allowed to cover all CCTV cameras. He was also using his mobile freely for a year. Action was taken against the jail officials who were involved in his racket.

Modus Operandi: Spoofing app to impersonate government officials
