Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been charged with money laundering in the case against conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, who is accused of extorting a staggering 200 crore rupees.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing into the money trail in the extortion case, has listed the actor as one of the accused in the supplemental chargesheet it has submitted to a Delhi court.
The ED had already interrogated her and attached the actor’s property. In accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, the bureau temporarily attached the actor’s assets totaling 7 crore in April (PMLA).
Sukesh Chandrasekhar gave Jacqueline Fernandez a variety of gifts totaling 5.71 crore rupees from the proceeds of crime, which included extortion.
According to the ED, these gifts included a horse for 52 lakh rupees and a Persian cat worth 9 lakh rupees. The agency has also claimed that Chandrashekar gave substantial sums of money to Ms. Fernandez’s family.
The ED claims Chandrashekar defrauded the family of former Ranbaxy promoters of 200 crore rupees, of which 5.71 crore were gifts given to the actor.
