Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who was arrested by Delhi Police's Crime Branch and is alleged to be TTV Dinakaran's middleman, has conned people not just in southern states but across India.
Chandrasekhar is accused of duping at least 500 Mumbaikars in a Rs 19-crore Ponzi scam.
In 2015, he and his partner Leena Maria Paul were arrested by Mumbai Police's Economic Offences Wing for running a Ponzi scheme.
He had floated a company and claimed to be a Member of Parliament (MP) from Bengaluru. He tricked people into investing their money in his company.
Following his arrest by Mumbai Police, he complained of chest pain and was admitted at J J Hospital in December 2015. He was later shifted to Rajawadi Hospital where he overstayed despite being issued a discharge certificate from the hospital.
It was reported that Sukesh Chandrasekhar remained adamant and refused to vacate the bed forcing the hospital authorities to call the police. This entire incident reportedly took a toll on the hospital superintendent who complained of chest pain and had to be admitted to an ICU.
While he was at the Rajawadi Hospital, Chandrasekhar called up the Bombay High Court registrar's office and claimed to the secretary of a Union cabinet minister. He asked the court to stall a property auction and said the matter was subjudice.
When the high court asked police to verify the call, it was traced to Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
He was finally shifted to Arthur Road Jail in April but soon managed to secure a bail in the case.
Thereafter, he was taken into custody by the Chennai Police but yet again he managed to get a bail. Nearly 50 cases against him have been lodged at various police stations across the country.
Sukesh Chandrasekhar has a battery of lawyers representing him in several courts. Till date, he has not paid back the investors who had put their money in his Ponzi scheme.
