Prisoned “conman” Sukesh Chandrashekhar on Friday agreed to a polygraph test to verify his charges of corruption in a new letter to Delhi lieutenant governor (L-G) VK Saxena. He also asked that chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and imprisoned AAP leader Satyendar Jain take the test.
“Kejriwal Ji, instead of crying foul… have the courage and guts to agree for the polygraph test,” the conman wrote in the letter, released by his lawyer.
Chandrashekhar suggested that the polygraph tests of Kejriwal, Jain and himself be conducted face-to-face and the entire process be live telecast “so that the whole country can watch the pandora box of the reality of Mr. Kejriwal and Mr. Jain enfold [sic] in open”.
“Don’t divert the issue, like how you and Mr. Jain used to tell me and laugh in good times that attack is the best form of defence…people are not foolish to believe your drama anymore,” Chandrashekhar, who is lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection to an alleged multi-crore fraud case, added.
In addition, he urged the media to avoid from referring to him as a “conman,” noting that he had not yet received a conviction in the fraud proceedings brought against him.
He published multiple letters in recent weeks in which he accused Jain of extorting 10 crore from him. In addition, he charged that Kejriwal was “seeking 50 crore for a nomination to the Rajya Sabha,” and that the jail administration as well as former DG Sandeep Goel were complicit.
Chandrashekhar said in a letter to Saxena on Thursday that he had been threatened with having his case against the AAP leaders dismissed. Additionally, he requested to be moved to a jail outside the city.
