Jacqueline Fernandez has been on the top news since conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar was arrested by the ED (Enforcement Directorate) in an alleged 200 crore money laundering case. It was reported that Sukesh gave many expensive gifts to her that are now seized by the ED.
Today, Sukesh’s advocate Anant Malik released a press note saying that it is wrong to say that he is a ‘conman’ or ‘thug’ until he is convicted. He also added that Sukesh was in a relationship with Jacqueline Fernandez and his relationships have no involvement in the criminal case.
This press note came after the ED turned down Jacqueline’s request to downgrade the Lookout Circular (LOC) issued against her in connection with the case. She had put a request to the ED to take down the circular so that she could travel abroad. However after the ED rejected the plea, she couldn’t leave the country. She also had to cancel her Riyadh tour for Salman Khan’s Dabangg.
On December 5, the Enforcement Directorate had issued a LOC against Jacqueline. She was stopped at the Mumbai airport by the immigration officials for the same. She was on her way to Muscat for a show but then she was bought to Delhi for questioning.
The ED has filed a charge sheet against Sukesh Chandrasekhar and others at the Delhi Court in a 200 crore money laundering case. The case alleged that he extorted Rs 200 crore from a businessman’s wife while he was in Tihar Jail. Jacqueline has already been questioned multiple times in connection with the case.
The charge sheet filed by the ED stated that Jacqueline and Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi had received luxury cars and other expensive gifts from Sukesh. He reportedly met Jacqueline through her makeup artist. Check out the full story here.
The ED stated that the charge sheet is filed under the anti-money laundering law. According to reports, Jacqueline told the ED that Sukesh posed as the owner of SunTV and had asked her to do South Indian films. Nora Fatehi’s name also popped up in the case but she was not called for questioning.
