If I am biggest thug, Kejriwal is ‘maha thug', says conman Sukesh in new letter
Jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar has written another letter alleging that he is being threatened by AAP leader Satyendar Jain and ex-DG (Prisons) of Tihar jail after his complaint to the Delhi L-G went public.
Earlier this week, Sukesh had written to Delhi LG VK Saxena alleging that he paid Rs 10 crore to incarcerated Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Satyendar Jain as 'protection money'.
In the letter, the conman wrote that he had known the AAP leader since 2015. The letter stated that a total amount of Rs 50 crore was paid to the AAP as he was promised an important party position in south India.
"Mr Kejriwal, I am the country's 'biggest thug' according to you. Then why did you receive Rs 50 crore from me and offer me Rajya Sabha seat? What does that make you – 'maha thug'?" he wrote in the letter.
Making yet another explosive claim, Sukesh levelled fresh allegations at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He accused the AAP chief of forcing him to bring 20-30 people to contribute Rs 500 crore towards the party in exchange of seats.
Sukesh Chandrasekhar is lodged in Delhi's Mandoli jail for allegedly extorting money from high-profile people and celebrities. Earlier, he was lodged in Tihar jail but was later shifted after his repeated requests. He had claimed that he received death threats from Tihar jail.
"I have known, Mr Satyendar Jain of AAP Since 2015, and have contributed more than 50 crores to AAP in promise of giving me important post in party in South Zone, and also helping me to be nominated to Rajaya sabha following the expansion," Sukesh said in his letter to L-G.
Speaking to India Today, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal rubbished Sukesh's allegations, saying it is an attempt to divert people's attention from the bridge collapse in Gujarat's Morbi.
Delhi's health minister Satyendar Jain was also arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in May this year in a money laundering case. Jain was arrested by the ED on May 30 in another criminal case linked to alleged hawala dealings.
