After receiving summons from Delhi Police, Jacqueline Fernandez appears before EOW today September 19 for questioning in the Sukesh Chandrashekhar money laundering case. This is her fourth appearance before EOW.
Earlier, Jacqueline was grilled by EOW for eight hours at its office in connection with the case. According to Special Commissioner of Police (EOW) Ravindra Yadav, Sukesh would attempt to influence the Bollywood actresses as he was having a huge wealth of properties acquired through extortion.
In a charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate, Jacqueline was named as an accused. The actress had filed a plea before the Appellate Authority of PMLA stating that the approach of ED, unfortunately, seems to be highly mechanical and motivated. The plea also stated that while other celebrities who received gifts from Sukesh were made witnesses, she was mentioned as an accused. This clearly shows a malafide, motivated and biased approach on the part of the investigation authority that cannot be ignored.
According to Ravinder Yadav, Special Commissioner of Police, EOW, there is trouble for Jacqueline Fernandez as she did not cut ties with Sukesh Chandrasekhar despite knowing his criminal antecedents.
Whereas Nora Fatehi did disconnect herself once she suspected something fishy.
