Enforcement Directorate in India has summoned Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez to appear before the investigators in Delhi tomorrow (8). The summons has been issued in connection with INR 200 crore extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
The agency summoned Fernandez, a day after stopping her at the Mumbai airport and preventing her from flying abroad, stating that she may be required to join the ongoing money laundering investigation.
It was believed that Fernandez was either travelling to Dubai or Muscat. She left the airport around 6 p.m. after being stopped.
The Sri Lankan-origin actor was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in multiple sessions in connection with the over INR 200 crore money laundering case being probed against Chandrashekhar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul.
The ED filed a charge sheet, in this case, before a special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Court on Saturday, naming Chandrashekhar, his wife and six others.
It had alleged in the charge sheet that Chandrashekhar had gifted the actor numerous costly gifts, including some Persian cats and a horse. He is accused of cheating some people, including some high-profile individuals such as former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh.
Another Bollywood actor-dancer Nora Fatehi has also been grilled by the ED in this case
Investigation found that Chandrashekhar was lodged in Delhi’s Rohini jail when he allegedly ran an extortion racket using phone spoofing technology.
The ED had arrested the couple and two co-accused, Pradeep Ramnani and Deepak Ramnani, in this case.
In August, the ED raided some of Chandrashekhar’s premises and seized a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, INR 82.5 lakh in cash and over a dozen luxury cars.
It had claimed in a statement that Chandrashekhar is a “known conman” and is being probed by the Delhi Police in a case of alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and extortion to the tune of about INR 200 crore.
