The person told her that he can help her to get bail for her husband.

Aditi Singh's husband Shivinder Singh was arrested and sent to prison in connection with the much-talked-about funds' misappropriation of the Religare Finvest Ltd (RFL) in 2019. Knowing that Aditi Singh is trying hard to secure bail for her husband, Chandrasekhar had approached her and called her.
