New Delhi: Actor Chhahat Khanna started recording her statement before the Patiala House Court in connection with the case Rs 200 crore duping case related to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
Notably, she is recording her 164 Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) statement before the court. Previously, the Delhi Police Economic Offence Wing (EOW) filed a chargesheet naming 14 accused including Sukesh Chandrashekhar, his wife Leena Maria Paul and others in 2021. The chargesheet was filed under various sections of IPC and provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).

According to the Prosecution, the EOW extended its investigation into the case related to extortion of over Rs 200 crore, by Rohini jail inmate Sukesh Chandrasekar for allegedly duping wives of former Religare promoters Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, who are currently in Tihar jail.
Investigations revealed that the accused Sukesh Chandrasekar had duped Shivinder's wife Aditi Singh and Malvinder's wife Japna Singh worth several crores of rupees. The women claimed that they have paid crores of rupees to Sukesh Chandrashekhar to secure bail for their husbands and ensure their safety, posing as an officer from the Union Law Ministry.
Chandrasekhar and his associates allegedly took money from Aditi after posing as government officials and promising to get bail for her husband. As per reports, Chandrasekhar persuaded Aditi to transfer money by impersonating a central government official over a spoof call while he was lodged in Rohini jail and promised to manage bail for her husband.
Both Chandrasekhar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul were arrested by the Delhi Police in September last year for their alleged role in the duping case. (ANI)
