Conman Sukesh Chandrashekar was taken to Delhi's Patiala House Court on Tuesday. He had earlier arrived in court in connection with the Rs 200-crore money laundering case.
As he was leaving the court, the media present outside the court asked him if he had met Arvind Kejriwal and other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders and paid them any money, to which he replied, "Yes". The media personnel further asked him, how much money was paid, to which he replied, "Rs 60 crore."
He was taken away by the police before he could say anything else, the media did follow him outside the court, but he was swiftly taken away.
The video was tweeted by several Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leaders, questioning AAP and Arvind Kejriwal whether they would still protect the corrupt leaders. BJP spokesperson Shehzad asked Kejriwal to take a lie detector test if he had nothing to hide.
Chandrashekhar has been jailed on charges of purported money laundering and duping several people.
Conman's letter to Delhi LG
Earlier, Sukesh wrote another letter to Delhi LG Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena requesting the CBI probe against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
In his latest letter to Delhi LG, Chandrashekhar wrote, "I request you to direct an urgent CBI investigation and allow me to file FIR as the pressure is getting too much and any undue event may take place before the truth about AAP is exposed," he wrote.
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, he said, "After my last application was released on media, from last two days there has been a severe threat that I have been receiving from the jail administration on behalf of Satyendar Jain and DG prison Sandeep Goel."
