Jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar wrote an explosive letter to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena, alleging that AAP leader Satyendar Jain had forced him to pay Rs 10 crore.
Chandrashekhar filed a complaint with the L-G and alleged that Jain, who is lodged in Tihar Jail number-7, was threatening him through DG Prison and jail administration to withdraw a complaint filed in the high court.
