BENGALURU/CHENNAI: Sukesh Chandrashekar, who was arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly trying to bribe Election Commission officials on behalf of AIADMK leader T T V Dhinakaran, is a habitual offender. Chandrashekar had been arrested multiple times on charges of cheating, said Bengaluru city police.
A police source said, “Sukesh Chandrashekar alias Balaji aka Shekar Reddy is a resident of Chandra Layout. He was a student of Bishop Cotton School but dropped out in Class X.”

Chandrashekar first came under city police radar years ago when he allegedly cheated a person by promising to get him a BDA (Bengaluru Development Authority) property in HSR Layout. He had introduced himself as a friend of Nikhil Gowda, son of former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy. Later Hulimavu police arrested him. In the same case, police said he may have duped at least 100 people.
 “Chandrashekar also duped a spa owner and a comedy actor in Bengaluru of `5 lakh by allegedly offering to get them government cars for lesser prices in auction. On several occasions, he also claimed to be either the grandson or relative of former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi,” police said.
Police sources say that more than 100 complaints have been registered against Chandrashekar while 15 FIRs have been filed in Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad. Bengaluru City Police Commissioner Praveen Sood said, “We have not got any communication from Delhi Police in this regard. We will help them with details or anything they want from us.”
