New Delhi [India], October 4 (ANI): The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, VK Saxena, on Wednesday forwarded a complaint made by alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar against Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leaders, to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
The alleged conman had written a letter to Delhi LG that he was being pressurised to retract statements made against AAP leaders.
As per a statement from Raj Niwas, Sukesh Chandrashekhar, had written to the LG on July 8, 2023, through his advocate, against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleging that his lawyer Anant Malik was getting threatening calls from people claiming to be speaking on behalf of CM Kejriwal and former Home Minister, GNCTD, Satyendar Jain.
"The caller (identified as Dinesh Mukhiya) is alleged to have threatened Sukesh with poisoning in his food at Mandoli Jail, which is under the control of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) if he did not retract his statements against Kejriwal and Jain," the statement from LG office said.
"In his letter, Sukesh has also requested that he be transferred from Mandoli Jail and out of Delhi to any Jail, which is not under the control of AAP," it added.
According to the LG, Sukesh in his July letter also sought transfer to another jail, outside the national capital.
"It has been submitted by Sukesh that the Delhi Prisons rule allows inmates to be transferred to their home State or any other State on special basis or reasons, and also recently the MHA had taken decisions to transfer high profile inmates/ undertrials out of Delhi," the statement added.
"I am kindly seeking a transfer from Delhi Jails which is being administered by the AAP Government to any other state jail which is not under the AAP Government till the time the investigations are completed against the above-mentioned persons exposed by me," the statement from LG office quoted Sukesh's letter as saying.
"Delhi LG, VK Saxena has forwarded a complaint addressed to him by Sukesh Chandrashekhar to the Ministry of Home Affairs, GoI, for further necessary action, on the recommendation of the Home Department, GNCTD," the Raj Niwas said in the statement. (ANI)
