He has been in and out of jail several times, but that never deterred him. Addicted to a good life-style and a life of conning people, Sukesh Chandrasekhar was a son who was disowned by his parents. His father who worked at a bank disowned him after realising that his son was a repeat offender.
Sukesh today is all over the news for allegedly trying to help Sasikala Natarajan's nephew, T T V Dinakaran strike a deal of Rs 50 crore to bag the AIADMK's symbol. Sukesh was arrested by the Delhi police on Monday and questioned. During his questioning, he said that he was tasked with bribing Election Commission of India officials to bag the AIADMK's symbol.
The symbol had been frozen by the EC after the O Panneerselvam camp staked a claim for the same. The two leaves symbol became important for both factions ahead of the R K Nagar by-poll which had to be countermanded by the EC after corruption charges were levelled during the campaigning.
During his questioning Sukesh said, " the Rs 1.3 crore that was found on me was meant to bribe officials of the EC. Dinakaran told me that he was ready to spend up to Rs 50 crore to buy the symbol."
The case came to light when the Delhi police got an alert about black money moving around in the city. Sukesh is alleged to have told Dinakaran that he is very influential person, well connected in the Delhi circles. He had also assured Dinakaran that he could get his aunt Sasikala Natarajan out of the Bengaluru central jail where she is doing time after being convicted in the disproportionate assets case.
