By PTI IST (Released)


On August 17, the Law Enforcement Branch filed an indictment naming Jacqueline Fernandez as a defendant in a multi-million money laundering case linked to Chandrashekhar.

Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez was summoned for questioning by the Economic Crimes Wing of the Delhi Police on Monday in connection with an extortion case linked to suspected con man Sukesh Chandrashekhar, officials said.

This is the second time she has been summoned for questioning by Delhi police over her alleged role in the case, they said.

A senior police officer said Fernandez was asked to join the investigation at 11 a.m. Monday at the Economic Crimes Wing office in Mandir Marg. “We need to review some documents and question him more about the case,” he said.

On Wednesday, Fernandez was interrogated for more than eight hours with Pinki Irani, who allegedly introduced the actor to Chandrashekhar. The investigation revealed that Chandrashekhar had offered a motorbike to Fernandez’s agent, Prashant, on his birthday, but he had refused to take it.

However, Chandrashekhar left the two-wheeler and its keys with Prashant, police said earlier, adding that the motorbike had been seized.

Chandrashekhar, who is currently in jail, is accused of cheating on many people including prominent figures such as the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh, Aditi Singh.

On August 17, the Law Enforcement Directorate filed an indictment naming Fernandez as a defendant in a multi-crore money laundering case linked to Chandrashekhar.

According to the ED, Fernandez and fellow Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi received luxury cars and other expensive gifts from him.
