New Delhi , The CBI has sought approval from the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi to register a case against former jail minister Satyendar Jain for allegedly extorting crores of rupees from various high profile prisoners, including alleged swindler Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
Lieutenant Governor V.K. Seeking mandatory sanction from Saxena, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) alleged that the extortion racket was being run in Delhi jails in connivance with the then Director General of Police (Prisons) Sandeep Goyal and the then Additional Inspector General (Prisons) Mukesh Prasad, associated officers, private persons and associates. Was being run.
CBI said in its letter to Saxena, these people worked as a syndicate for this. He has information from sources that Jain allegedly extorted Rs 10 crore as protection money himself or through his associates in various installments during the year 2018-21 from jailed Sukesh Chandrashekhar, so that the alleged swindler Can be provided a comfortable life in jail.
Chandrashekhar is in jail on charges of money laundering and cheating many people. According to CBI, Goyal and Mukesh Prasad also extorted Rs 12.50 crore from jailed Sukesh Chandrashekhar. The agency alleged that Goyal and Prasad also collected protection money from other high profile prisoners lodged in the jail, so that these prisoners could live comfortably in the jail. The CBI alleged that Jain, Goyal, Prasad and Kumar misused their official positions as public servants and provided undue favors to Chandrashekhar and other high profile prisoners in Delhi jails in exchange for money. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Jain is lodged in Delhi jail in a money laundering case.
Crackdown may also be tightened on former jail DG
The CBI has asked the Home Office to register an FIR against former Delhi Jail Director General (DG) Sandeep Goyal and former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Mukesh Prasad for allegedly extorting crores of rupees from several high profile prisoners, including conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Ministry’s permission has been sought. The CBI has requested for compulsory sanction against Goyal, a 1989 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, and retired IAS officer Prasad. Goyal was suspended by the ministry last year.
On behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party, it has been said that the CBI has sought permission from the Lieutenant Governor to investigate against Satyendar Jain and others only on the basis of Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s statement. This is nothing but making a mockery of the law. We can clearly say that there has never been any relation or transaction between Satyendar Jain, Sukesh Chandrashekhar or any of his associates. The central government, on a planned basis, wants to implicate the party leaders by declaring the thug as a truthful person. Whereas the truth is that first of all a CBI investigation should be done on the claims of Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who has cheated so many people till now.
