Jacqueline Fernandez Faces Fresh ED Summons in Sukesh Chandrashekhar Money Laundering Case

Bollywood star is called by the Enforcement Directorate again over her alleged involvement with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar

Jacqueline Fernandez’s troubles persist as she is summoned once more by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the money-laundering case involving Sukesh Chandrashekhar. The “Murder 2” actress was reportedly in a relationship with the alleged conman, who has been accused of orchestrating a 200-crore money-laundering scheme. It is alleged that Fernandez was aware of Sukesh’s criminal activities and fabricated stories to evade investigations.

Reports indicate that the “Kick” star received lavish gifts from Sukesh, including Hermes bags, luxury watches, four Persian cats, and a horse worth Rs 52 lakhs. The ED has accused her of concealing the truth and erasing all data from her cellphone after Sukesh’s arrest, urging her colleagues to destroy any potential evidence. These allegations suggest that Fernandez was benefiting from the proceeds of Sukesh’s crimes. While Fernandez is embroiled in this case, Nora Fatehi, another Bollywood actress, also came under scrutiny but was granted bail by the ED.

According to the Financial Express, the ED summoned Jacqueline Fernandez on Wednesday after discovering new and significant evidence in the Sukesh Chandrashekhar case. The agency aims to verify this information with the “Murder 2” actress.

Fernandez has been interrogated multiple times by the federal agency regarding her alleged involvement in the 200-crore fraud, which also involved high-profile individuals like Aditi Singh, wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh, as per PTI.

This recent summon marks at least the fifth time Fernandez has been called by the ED in relation to the Sukesh Chandrashekhar money-laundering case. The ED alleges that Chandrashekhar used his illicit funds to purchase extravagant gifts for Fernandez, which she knowingly enjoyed. The 2022 chargesheet by the ED states that Fernandez was “enjoying valuables, jewelry, and costly gifts provided by Chandrashekhar despite knowing about his criminal antecedents.”

Fernandez, however, maintains her innocence, denying any knowledge of Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s alleged criminal history.
