Fadnavis: Designer Held Bid To Bribe Wife Of Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis Of Maharashtra | News from India

MUMBAI: A 26-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday from Ulhasnagar on charges of offering deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis‘ Wife Amruta Rs 1 crore bribes to help her father who is accused in several criminal cases and tries to blackmail them.
Earlier in the day, Fadnavis, who controls the real estate portfolio, told the House he filed an FIR in February after doctored videos were used to make threats that he would lose his job. One showed the defendant, Aniksha Jaisinghani, 26, stuffed money into a bag and another showed her handing a similar bag to their house help. She said the episode seemed designed to get him in trouble and ensnare his family. “I am sad about the level reached by politics. If there is something political in this, I can’t say because one doesn’t know how much to believe her,” said Fadnavis.
Aniksha had appointed several prominent politicians and policemen and the process of filing cases against Anil Jaisinghani it had started during the reign led by Uddhav Thackeray MVA regime, said Fadnavis. “In one conversation, he said during the time of the former Mumbai Police Commissioner, our cases were dropped and then stopped when you (Fadnavis) came along.” Fadnavis later told the media, “It is possible that they started this conspiracy during the MVA government to get their cases dropped. Once the government changed, maybe they thought they could achieve this through blackmail.”
Malabar Hill and Ulhasnagar police questioned Aniksha for at least six hours at her home in Mayapuri apartment building in Ulhasnagar before taking her to Mumbai. Her brother Akshan was also questioned, complained of discomfort and was hospitalized. Sources said the police seized several electronic devices from them.
Anil Jaisinghani, 56, is facing 17 cases in six states, a source said. In seven cases he has been on the run for five years. In May 2019, a lookout circular was issued against him.
Fadnavis said his wife met Aniksha, who claimed to be a designer of artificial clothing and jewellery, in 2015-16. The ties were renewed in 2021. Once the trust was established, Aniksha asked Amruta to get involved with her in making money using tips from bookies.
“Then she sent threats that I have this video and your husband’s job will go,” she said.
An FIR was filed against her.
