Sri Lankan actress, predominately known for her work in the Indian film industry, Jacqueline Fernandez made headlines a year ago after her name was linked with conman Sukesh Chandrashekar in a 200 crore rupees money laundering case. Jacqueline was alleged to be associated with the conman but the latest supplementary charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has named Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez as an accused.
The ED will likely file a second supplementary prosecution complaint against the actress today at Delhi’s Patiala House Court in connection with the Rs 215 crore extortion racket and money-laundering case against Sukesh. The charge sheet will be filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The supplementary charge sheet will be done in the recovery case of Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is currently lodged in Tihar Jail.
The ED had said that the actress was a beneficiary of a Rs 215 crore extortion case and was gifted items worth Rs 10 crore by the conman. Besides this, it also read that Sukesh Chandrashekhar also lent gifts and money to Jacqueline’s family. The former statement also claimed that these gifts were not presented by Sukesh himself but by his criminal associate Pinky Irani who was also a friend of Jacqueline.
For the unversed, Sukesh Chandrashekar had been accused of extorting Rs 215 crore from the wife of a Delhi-based businessman and former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh through fake calls. Sukesh has also been allegedly involved in a 5-year-old cheating case involving TTV Dhinakaran.
