15 September, 2022 | Pranay Lad
Actress Nora Fatehi showed up for interrogation in the same case the day after Bollywood star Jacqueline Fernandez was interrogated by the Economic Offences Wing (of the Delhi Police) for more than eight hours about an extortion case connected to imprisoned conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
Jaqueline received three summonses in all, the first two being on August 29 and the third on September 12. She gave recorded testimonies to the Enforcement Directorate on August 30 and October 20 of last year, when she acknowledged receiving gifts from Sukesh Chandrashekhar. The Enforcement Directorate has also questioned the actor.
Four additional actors are engaged in the lawsuit in addition to Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez. Allegedly, the four travelled to Delhi’s Tihar Jail to see the con artist through his ally Pinky Irani. All four have already been questioned by the ED, and they all anticipate being questioned by the EOW.
Nikita Tamboli, who predominantly works in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi television, became well-known when she made an appearance on the reality series Big Boss. She reportedly informed authorities that Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who went by the name of Himsel Shekhar, was introduced to her by Pinky Irani. Sukesh apparently met Tamboli twice while he was incarcerated.
Pinky Irani introduced Sukesh Chandrasekhar to Chahatt Khanna, a television actress best known for playing “Ayesha” in “Bade Achhe Lagte Hain” from 2011 to 2015. Sukesh Chandrasekhar pretended to be a south Indian movie director to Chahatt Khanna.
According to the media sources, Pinky Irani also sought television star Sophia Singh under the guise of a film possibility with “respected south Indian producer Shekhar.”
Arusha Patil According to media sources, Arusha said she had never seen Sukesh Chandrasekhar but had communicated with him over WhatsApp. She was paid 5.2 lakh rupees for the conversation, of which she donated 1 lakh rupees to Pinky Irani.
Aditi Singh, the wife of imprisoned former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh, has accused Sukesh Chandrashekhar of operating a $200 million extortion ring from behind bars.
He and his friends pretended to be representatives of the Prime Minister’s Office and the Union Law Ministry in order to steal money from Aditi Singh under the guise of her husband’s release.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar, a resident of Bengaluru in the state of Karnataka, is presently detained in a prison in Delhi and is accused of more than ten crimes.
