ED summoned Jacqueline Fernandez in money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned famous Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez in a 200 crore money laundering case. This case is part of the ED investigation linked with an alleged scammer Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

According to Indian media reports, ED called Jacqueline to confirm some significant evidence with her that it found recently. The actress is facing charges of benefiting from an alleged crime in which Sukesh blackmailed Aditi Singh into paying him INR 200 crores.

Jacqueline and Sukesh shared a close relationship

Aditi is the ex-wife of Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh. ED has already conducted many interrogations with Jacqueline. This is because Jacqueline was close to Sukesh.

Jacqueline stated that she received presents from Sukesh in 2021. It included three fancy bags, two gym-wearing Gucci clothes, a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes, and two pairs of diamond rings with several other items.

The Enforcement Directorate filed a chargesheet against the actress in 2022. It claimed she enjoyed valuables, jewelry, and other precious gifts from Sukesh while knowing about his criminal activities.

The chargesheet listed precious presents including a Persian cat and an Arabian Horse which Jacqueline received from Sukesh. It is significant to note that ED has summoned Jacqueline Fernandez for the sixth time due to her close bond with Sukesh.

However, she has consistently maintained her innocence while denying any knowledge of the alleged criminal activities of Sukesh in recent years.

Jacqueline also appeared in Delhi court in December 2023. She claimed that Sukesh made her life hell by manipulating her feelings. She moved the court to request imposing strict conditions on Sukesh in jail. So that, he may not threaten her through messages, letters, or statements.

Sukesh has been serving imprisonment in Mandoli jail since ED arrested him in February 2023 in the same money laundering case. Since his arrest, Sri Lankan-origin Jacqueline has been going through legal proceedings.

She also does not have permission to travel abroad due to ongoing case proceedings. A law enforcement squad is always active around her.
