New Delhi, September 5

The Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) on Sunday said it has arrested actor Leena Maria Paul, who is known to be the girlfriend of Rohini jail inmate Sukesh Chandrasekar, for allegedly supporting her partner in cases of duping.

Sukesh was arrested following an allegation of duping of Rs 200 crore by Aditi Singh, the wife of Shivinder Singh, who was the former promoter of Fortis Healthcare.

Officials in the EOW said Sukesh was produced before a Delhi court on Saturday and sent to police custody for 16 days. “We have also arrested Leena under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), and now further investigations are on,” a senior EOW official said.

Earlier, Aditi Singh had lodged an FIR with Delhi Police’s Special Cell, alleging that she was cheated of Rs 200 crore by a man posing as the “law secretary” and promised to help her with cases related to Shivinder Singh.

“I was assured that the central government would be interested to work with my husband after making him an ‘industry advisor’ on Covid-related committees; he asked me to contribute to the ‘party fund’ and assured to set up a meeting either with the former law minister or home minister,” Aditi Singh alleged in her FIR.

A senior police official had earlier said, “Aditi Singh had lodged an FIR with the Special Cell and the case was transferred to the EOW. We found that Sukesh was running an extortion racket using cell phones from inside the jail. We had arrested Sukesh from Rohini jail. Among the others we have arrested are his two associates Pradeep Ramdanee and Deepak Ramnani, two jail officials, deputy superintendent Subhash Batra and assistant jail superintendent Dharam Singh Meena, Komal Poddar, who is a manager at RBL in Connaught Place, and his two associates Avinash Kumar and Jitender Narula.”
