Now as per the latest report, Nikki was taken inside Tihar jail to recreate her alleged meeting with the conman as part of a probe.
A report in Times Of India mentioned that the team of Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing, on Saturday, took two actresses Nikki and Sofia Singh to the Tihar's central jail number one to recreate their meetings with the conman. The report added that the prison had become a hub of illegal activities ever since Sukesh Chandrasekhar has been jailed.

“Many people visited Chandrashekhar inside the jail. However, we are only summoning those who are relevant to our investigation. Currently, Chandrashekar is jailed in Mandoli Prison,” the official said.
Special Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav was quoted saying, “We are doing a thorough investigation in the case and that's why we have recreated the scene of meeting of the actresses with Chandrashekhar. That has given us a clear understanding of how this fraud was carried out. This will help us in prosecution.”
