Early Life of Sukesh Chandrasekhar
Sukesh, in his early teens, began conning people to live a luxurious lifestyle. He was first arrested at the age of 17 in a cheating case when he duped a family friend of Rs 1.5 crore by claiming to be a friend of the son of a well-known senior politician.
Around some years ago, Sukesh Chandrashekhar was leading an uber-luxurious life in Chennai. A sea-facing bungalow, a fleet of cars which included Ferrari and Porsche, a wife and several girlfriends. Sukesh Chandrashekhar, also known as Bajali, worked really hard for this — finding super rich targets, impersonating high-ranking officials, wooing Bollywood actresses are not tasks after all!
Career Life of Sukesh Chandrasekhar
According to sources, once Sukesh forged the signature of the Bangalore police commissioner to publish a certificate claiming him to drive anywhere in Karnataka though he was a minor at that time. For several years, Sukesh allegedly posed as the grandson of a former chief minister and cheated hundreds of people making a profit of several crores. Later, he started a company called King Investment and deceived over Rs 2000 crore from investors.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar Controversy with the Law
In 2017, Chandrashekhar was arrested by a team of Delhi Police from a five-star hotel in south Delhi for claiming himself to be the middleman of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran and making plans to approach the Election Commission officials to deviate the judgement in favour of the Sasikala faction of the AIADMK for the two-leaf symbol. He was on an interim bail when Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing officials arrested him in connection with the cheating case of Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife, Aditi Singh. Delhi Police sent Chandrashekhar to eight days of police custody after he was spotted at the residence of a judge. Chandrashekhar was claimed to have asked for a sum of Rs. 50 crore for influencing the Election Commission officials. Police officials, after his arrest, released a press statement that read,
“We will probe if he knows any EC officials who were willing to swing the symbol verdict in his favour. He claimed that he knew Dinakaran for the last 4 years. A part of the promised Rs. 50 crore was transferred in white. It also appears that a Chandni Chowk-based Hawala trader was transferring the money. We will also give a report to the ED about the money. The investigation is on.”
In 2021, Sukesh Chandrasekhar was arrested along with five other jail officials in connection with the Rs. 200 crore extortion case. He planted a copping business inside the Tihar jail with the help of some jail officials. According to senior police officials, Sukesh was living a king’s life inside the jail. He was illegally provided with an iPhone 12 Pro Max and a Samsung phone with Israeli phone numbers to run his business from inside jail. He paid more than Rs. 1 crore per month to jail officials to help him in completing his task. A senior police official said,
“He was living in the jail like a king. It seems all officials of Rohini jail were involved because of the facilities given to him. An entire barrack vacant of all other inmates was given to him. He had covered the CCTV cameras as well. He was freely using his mobile to run the extortion racket for a year. He also had a spoofing app to impersonate government officials and politicians to lure his targets. He used to brainwash his people through this. Like in a case, he said to a woman that her husband could get bail if they were with the government.”
He further added,
“An assistant jail superintendent and the deputy superintendent of Rohini Jail were found involved in the racket and they have admitted to having helped the accused. The two jail officials were also arrested.”

Sukesh is now in Delhi’s Tihar Jail for allegedly extorting Rs 200 crores from a desperate wife of a millionaire who was trying to bail out her husband. And guess what, he pulled this off while sitting in jail. Soon, his selfies with actress Jacqueline Fernandez and connection with Nora Fatehi became the talk of the town. As the details emerge, he leaves us baffled and impressed. By now, several production houses would also be in a rush to buy copyright and convert his life story into an OTT series.
