The 27-year-old was arrested with 1.3 crores which he claims was meant to be given as bribe to Election Commission officials on behalf of TTV Dinakaran to "buy" rights to use the AIADMK's "two leaves" symbol. Mr Dinakaran is the nephew of VK Sasikala.
After the arrest, it was presumed he would be presented before the Patiala House court for his custody proceedings.
Police officers waited in the labyrinth of corridors in the central Delhi court complex which is the erstwhile palace of the Maharaja of Patiala.
Then court reporters were told that the policemen would be taking Mr Chandrasekar to another district court, the Tis Hazari Courts, a 20-minute drive from Patiala House Courts.
The police, along with Mr Chandrasekar, reached Tiz Hazari at around 4:40 PM and went straight to court room number 25. But the judge who sits there - Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary - was on a half-day leave.
Their next stop was court room number 139 of Special Judge Hemani Malhotra. She too was not there.
The police then decided to knock at Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Satish Kumar Arora's doors in room number 38. No luck.
Finally, after about half an hour, the police decided that Sukash Chandrasekar would be taken to the home of Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary.
At the end of the day, Delhi Police got eight days of Mr Chandrasekar's custody.
