Actor Maria Paul’s partner remanded to custody

CHENNAI: A court in Chennai on Wednesday remanded to judicial custody Sukesh Chandrasekar, who was allegedly involved in several cheating cases along with his partner and Kerala-born actress Leena Maria Paul.

Chandrasekar was arrested in a Kolkata mall on July 5 and was brought on Wednesday morning after investigations in Delhi where he used to live in a farmhouse with the actress.

A college drop-out hailing from Bangalore, he has 16 pending cases — eight in Tamil Nadu, six in Karnataka and one each in Kerala and Delhi, police said.

Chandrasekar, and Leena, both 25, are accused in a Rs190 million cheating case as well as a case of duping of a businessman of Rs6.24 million.

The family of the actress is in the Gulf but she had come to India a couple of years back seeking to work in films.

Leena was arrested from Khari Farms in Fatehpur Beri, South Delhi, a month ago.

Chandrashekhar gave a slip to police and then filed for an anticipatory bail in Delhi but the court denied it after Tamil Nadu police presented proof of his involvement in cheating.

A judge in Tambaram in the city sent him to judicial custody, but police filed a plea to get him in custody for interrogation.

Police say the two lived a life of luxury and Chandrashekhar used Leena to dupe people.

They claimed to be “live-in partners.”

 Chandrashekhar used to drive around in luxury cars in a bid to impress people and target them for money, police said.

In 2010, he took siren-fitted cars from a travel firm near Valluvar Kottam and moved in the city like a VIP.

He had been evading Tamil Nadu police since 2011.

Nine luxury cars, including a Rolls Royce, were seized from the farmhouse in May.

Chandrashekhar, who had lost 4 fingers on his left hand in an accident, is accused of cheating a businessman of more than Rs6 million, posing as an IAS officer.

Another case is that he cheated three youths on the promise of getting them into Bollywood.

During his arrest at a Delhi mall, Chandrashekhar had diamond rings worth Rs7.5 million in hand, a bag worth Rs300,000 and an Apple iPhone.

His claims of contacts with film directors in Chennai attracted Leena, police said.
