ED interrogated Jacqueline Fernandez in money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned Bollywood star Jacqueline Fernandez on Monday in relation to a money laundering case involving imprisoned conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

According to sources, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned actress Jacqueline Fernandez on Monday in relation to a money laundering case involving imprisoned con artist Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Additionally, the actor has previously been the subject of an investigation. According to rumors, Jacqueline was in a relationship with Sukesh and knew him well. The actor, though, has remained silent on the subject.

After receiving a summons from a federal agency, Jacqueline showed up at the ED’s headquarters on Monday to provide a statement on the matter. The agency attached the actor’s properties worth 7.27 crore rupees in April in the case that was filed under the PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act), 2002.

The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police filed an FIR against the suspected conman who was phoning individuals to deceive them and was the subject of the present case brought by the ED. He claimed to be a government official offering to aid individuals for a fee, and the numbers that appeared on their phones appeared to be from officials of the government. In September 2021, the Delhi Police detained Sukesh and his wife, the actor Leena Maria Paul, for their suspected involvement in a case of duping.

Sukesh Chandrasekhar admitted to police throughout the inquiry that he had given Jacqueline several presents totaling 5.71 crore rupees, much of which came from the profits of illegal operations, such as extortion. According to the ED, in addition to these presents, Sukesh reportedly gave close relatives of Jacqueline money totaling $172,913 and Aus $26,740.
