Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been identified as a defendant in the money laundering case against conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, who is accused of demanding extortion payments totaling a whopping 200 crore.
The actor is included as one of the defendants in the supplemental charge sheet that the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is investigating the money trail in the extortion case, has given to the court.
She had already been questioned by the ED, who also attached the actor’s property. In April, the agency temporarily attached the actor’s assets, totaling 7 crores, in compliance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
“From the profits of crime, which included extortion, Sukesh Chandrasekhar gifted Jacqueline Fernandez a number of gifts totaling 5.71 crore rupees.”
In a subsequent statement, the ED said that Chandrashekhar had assigned Pinky Irani, a close friend and co-accused in this case, to deliver the aforementioned presents to the woman.
These presents included a horse worth 52 lakh rupees and a Persian cat worth 9 lakh rupees, according to the ED. The agency also asserts that Chandrashekar offered Ms. Fernandez’s family large financial gifts.
The ED alleges that Chandrashekar stole 200 crore rupees from the family of the former Ranbaxy promoters, 5.71 crore of which were gifts to the actor.
Ms. Fernandez, a Sri Lankan national, made her Hindi film debut in 2009.
The ED has made a total of eight arrests in this case. Among them are Chandrashekhar and his wife Leena Maria Paul.
