Actress Jacqueline Fernandez was sent a new summons by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) on Monday, asking her to appear on September 14 in connection with the suspected Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
The actress stated previous obligations and requested a date after 15 days, thus Delhi Police postponed the interview that was supposed to take place on Monday. She was requested to join the probe on Wednesday, but Delhi Police didn’t give her any notice. This is the third time that Fernandez has received a summons from the police to participate in the investigation.
A senior police official confirmed that Jacqueline had received a new summons, ordering her to appear on September 14 at roughly 11 am at the EOW office on Mandir Marg.
Jacqueline is included in the charge sheet for money laundering cases involving Sukesh by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). According to the ED charge sheet, Fernandez was aware of Sukesh’s participation in criminal matters, but she chose to ignore it and engaged in financial dealings with him.
The ED had filed a money laundering case in the alleged scheme based on the FIR filed by the Delhi Police. ED had previously claimed that Fernandez’s testimonies, in which she acknowledged receiving gifts from Chandrashekar, were taped on August 30 and October 20, 2021.
Fernandez had purchased expensive presents for herself and her family members in India and overseas using profits of crime, according to the ED, and this constituted money laundering in violation of section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar, a resident of Bengaluru in the state of Karnataka, is presently detained in a prison in Delhi and is charged in more than 10 criminal cases.
When he was being held at Rohini prison, Chandrashekhar was charged with operating a Rs 200 crore extortion ring.
He is accused of attempting to extort money from Aditi Singh, the incarcerated former owner of Ranbaxy, under the guise of obtaining freedom for her husband by acting as a representative of the PMO and the Union Law Ministry.
