One-liner: The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday sought prosecution of master conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar for perjury.

False statement: It claimed he has falsely stated in his affidavit about a physical assault in Tihar Jail and deliberately omitted the report of the doctors who ruled out any physical injury on him. 

Transfer plea opposed: The ED opposed the transfer of Chandrashekhar and his wife from Tihar Jail to any other prison outside Delhi on the ground of a threat to his life.

List of names of jails: The bench posted the matter for further hearing on June 23 and asked Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to come up with a list of names of jails where he and his wife could be transferred. 

Faces threat to life: Senior advocate R Basant, appearing for Chandrashekhar, said that his client continuously faces threats to his life from jail staff and protection money is being sought from him.    

Inquiry ordered: Mehta said Chandrashekhar used to call models and celebrities to his jail in collusion with prison staff, who have been suspended and an inquiry has been ordered against them.  

Bottom line: In a fresh affidavit filed by Director General (Prisons), Delhi Prisons, it was said that the contents of Chandrashekhar's application that he was assaulted in jail are vehemently denied as totally false.
