The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar in a fresh money laundering case linked to duping of former Religare promoter Malvinder Singh’s wife, officials said on Thursday.
A Delhi court sent him to nine-day ED custody under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The fresh charges against Chandrashekhar pertain to Rs 3.5 crore that Malvinder Singh’s wife Japna is alleged to have paid after she was conned that this money would be used to bail her husband out.
Malvinder Singh is currently lodged in jail in a case against him linked to alleged misappropriation of funds at Religare Finvest Limited (RFL).
