Serial conman Sukesh Chandrasekar (23) arrested by Chennai city police owned 90 watches worth over a crore, diamond jewellery worth Rs. 1.40 crore, 12 high-end cars and was active in the road racing circuit in every city he settled.

Sukesh, who is suspected to have cheated close to 100 persons of nearly Rs. 50 crore by posing as a relative of various prominent politicians in Chennai and other cities, is now in police custody here. He is being interrogated for cheating a bank and businessman here of over Rs. 19 crore.

CCB officials said Sukesh was a seasoned fraudster and a tough nut to crack and had not revealed much under custody. He purchased expensive cars, watches, high-end mobile phones and designer clothes with the money he had fraudulently obtained.

Sukesh is being grilled further to ascertain the trail of the money and whether he has other accomplices apart from Leena, sources added.
