    An FIR was filed on August 7 after Aditi informed police that a man posing as a senior official of the Law Ministry in June last year had offered to help her secure bail for her husband, who was in jail at that time, in return for money. Later, the police learnt that it was Chandrashekhar who had made that call to her. The cops arrested him in August.

    When this incident took place, Chandrasekhar was lodged in Delhi's Rohini jail and was operating an extortion racket from behind the bars. According to a senior police officer, in his call to Aditi Singh, while Chandrashekhar pretended to be a senior government official in law ministry, it was Leena who transferred the call.

    Prior to her arrest, the actress has been under the radar of Enforcement Directorate (ED) on several occasions.
