New Delhi: The CBI has sought sanction from Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena to file a case against former Jail Minister Satyendar Jain for allegedly extorting crores of rupees from various high profile prisoners, including alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, to enable them to live comfortably in prison. While seeking mandatory sanction from LG, the CBI alleged that a high level corruption and extortion racket was being run in the jails of Delhi in connivance with the then top jail officials, private persons and accomplices. In its letter to Mr Saxena, CBI alleged that Satyendra Jain allegedly extorted and received 10 crore rupees from jail inmate Chandrashekar in various tranches during 2018-21 either himself or through his accomplices, as protection money, to enable the alleged conman to live a peaceful and comfortable life in jail. Chandrashekhar is lodged in Tihar jail in Delhi on charges of money laundering and duping several people.
