A Delhi court on Thursday will hear the regular bail request of Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez in connection with the Enforcement Directorate’s case involving Rs 2.00 Crore money laundering case involving scammer Sukesh Chandrashekar and others.
She was previously released on bail by the court.
Lawyer Prashant Patil, attorney for Jacqueline Fernandez, confirmed during a meeting with ANI that she (Jacqueline Fernandez) will attend the court proceedings for Thursday.
The Department of Enforcement (ED) stated in its response to Jacqueline’s regular bail request that she never cooperated with the investigation and only made the disclosure when confronted with evidence.
Jacqueline was briefed on Sukesh’s criminal history within 10 days of her acquaintance with him. She is not an ordinary person but a Bollywood actress with huge financial resources and thus high status and influence mentioned in the ED.
The judge in the additional hearings previously notified ED of Jacqueline’s regular bail request and granted her provisional bail until such time as the regular bail request is filed.
On 17 August 2022, an additional charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate in the Rs 200 crore extortion case against con man Sukesh Chandrashekar in a Delhi court listed Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez’s name as an accused.
Jacqueline Fernandez has also been summoned several times in the case by ED for the purpose of investigation.
Attorney Prashant Patil has appeared before Jacquline and has stated that she has always cooperated with the investigative authorities and attended all subpoenas. She has handed over all information to the emergency room to the best of her ability.
According to ED’s previous Chargesheet, Bollywood actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi investigated and stated that the actresses were given top models of BMW cars, the most expensive gifts from the accused Sukesh.
ED indictment clearly stated: “During the investigation, statements from Jacqueline Fernandez were recorded on August 30, 2021 and October 20, 2021, Jacqueline Fernandez stated that she received gifts, namely three designer bags from Gucci, Chanel and two Gucci sportswear outfits. A few Louis Vuitton shoes, two pairs of diamond earrings and a bracelet of multicolored stones, two Hermes bracelets. She also got a Mini Cooper that she sent back.”
According to ED, Sukesh faced Jacqueline on October 20, 2021. Jacqueline Fernandez stated that Sukash Chandrasekhar had arranged private jet travel and hotel stays for himself on several occasions.
Statements by Nora Fatehi were registered under section 50 of PMLA, 2002 on September 12, 2021 and October 14, 2021, in which she stated that she had received a booking for a charity event and during the event she was given a Gucci bag and an iPhone by Leena Paulose (wife of Chandrashekhar).
Nora Fatehi further stated that Leena Paulose called her husband and put the phone on speaker where he thanked her and said they were her fans. She then announced that they would gift her a brand new BMW car as a token of love and generosity.
