Hello Mumbai National Desk
The Enforcement Directorate summoned Danceuse-Actress Nora Fatehi and actress Jacqueline Fernandez in the allegedly Rs.200 cr.Money Laundering case.
Nora Fatehi appeared before the Enforcement Directorate in New Delhi on Thursday 14 October and will be cross-examined for her connection with the accused Sukesh Chandrashekhar and and Leena Paul who allegedly extorted Rs 200 crore from the wife of Shivindra M Singh of Ranbaxy in lieu of his release from jail and who were arrested by the Delhi Police.
Reports reveal that Nora is being questioned to determine her connection to the accused.
Whereas Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez too has been summoned by the ED to appear before them on Friday 15 October in connection with the same case as both Nora and she had connections with
Sukesh Chandrashekhar and and Leena Paul.
Earlier, in August, Jacqueline was interrogated for almost five hours in the same case. But, sources also added that Jacqueline has been roped in the matter as a victim and not as accused in the case.
Reportedly, the case was filed based on a complaint by Fortis Healthcare Promoter Shivinder Singh’s wife, Aditi Singh, in June, who alleged that an individual posing as a senior official from the Law Ministry helped in securing bail for Singh (then in jail) in return for a sum of 200 crores, which Aditi Singh claims to have been told that the money was meant for BJP party funds.
