Officials disclosed on Thursday that Sukesh Chandrashekhar, an alleged conman, had been detained by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a new money laundering case involving the deception of former Religare promoter Malvinder Singh’s wife.
A Delhi court sent him to nine-day ED custody under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Sukesh Chandrashekhar is now facing new allegations involving Rs 3.5 crore that Malvinder Singh’s wife Japna is said to have given under false pretences that it will be utilised to save her husband.
Malvinder Singh is currently in prison in connection with an accusation that he took money from Religare Finvest Limited (RFL).
In a PMLA case where he is accused of defrauding Aditi Singh, the wife of Malvinder Singh’s brother Shivinder Singh, Sukesh Chandrashekar was previously detained by the ED.
