OMG! Nikki Tamboli taken inside Tihar Jail to recreate her meeting with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar
Mumbai (Maharashtra): It seems that the Sukesh Chandrashekhar case has been getting more complicated with more and more names being involved in the money laundering probe. Netizens were shocked when previously the name of television actor Nikki Tamboli cropped up. In a chargesheet filed by ED, it was reported that the actor visited Chandrashekhar in the Tihar jail and had received lakhs of rupees and several expensive gifts from him.
A report now suggests that Nikki was taken inside the Tihar jail to recreate her meeting with the conman. TOI mentioned that a team of Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing took her along with another actor named Sofia Singh to Tihar jail number one to recreate their meetings. The report further suggested that the jail had become a hub for illegal activities after Sukesh Chandrashekhar became an inmate. He along with the help of a few corrupt officials operated his outside illegal pursuits where many times several celebrities who came to visit him in their luxurious cars were offered a pass to meet him.
Confirming the scenario, a senior official said, “Many people visited Chandrashekhar inside the jail. However, we are only summoning those who are relevant to our investigation. Currently, Chandrashekar is jailed in Mandoli Prison.”
“We are doing a thorough investigation in the case and that's why we have recreated the scene of the meeting of the actresses with Chandrashekhar. That has given us a clear understanding of how this fraud was carried out. This will help us in prosecution,” Special Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav stated.
