Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar challenges Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to resign if his allegations against him proven correct
Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar has written another letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, challenging him to "be ready to be hanged" if his complaint is proven false, or else Kejriwal "should resign and retire from politics for good," according to news agency ANI.
"Kejriwal Ji, if any of my issues raised with the Delhi LG turn out to be incorrect, as you and your associates claimed, I'm ready to be hanged." "However, if the complaint is proven to be true, you will resign and retire from politics for good," his letter stated.
The conman, who is currently being held in Tihar Jail, has accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of pressuring him to bring 20-30 individuals to contribute Rs 500 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party in exchange for seats and party postings.
Chandrashekhar claimed in a series of letters to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena that he was forced to pay Rs 10 crore in protection money to AAP leader Satyendar Jain when he was in charge of Jail. He also asked for a CBI investigation and permission to file a FIR.
"I request that you direct an urgent CBI investigation and allow me to file a FIR as the pressure is mounting and any untoward event may occur before the truth about AAP is revealed," he wrote in the letter.
The conman was arrested on suspicion of defrauding and extorting several high-profile people, including Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh.
He was arrested in April of last year in connection with another money laundering case related to the 2017 Election Commission bribery case, which apparently involved a former AIADMK leader among many others.
