To secure businessman Shivender Singh's bail, fraudster Sukesh Chandrasekhar impersonated a senior Union Home Ministry official and contacted Shivender's wife, Aditi. Chandrasekhar deceitfully promised to facilitate her husband's release in exchange for a payment of 200 crores.
Over a period of time, the extorted amount of 200 crores was received in 30 instalments across various locations in Delhi. This unlawful act was produced from inside the prison. Prior to his arrest, revelations surfaced about Sukesh's involvement in a significant fraud case.
Sukesh's residence and office are situated in Bengaluru, where multiple cars linked to him have been confiscated. As a result, an auction for these luxury vehicles associated with Sukesh Chandrasekhar is scheduled to take place in Bengaluru on November 28.
