About a year ago, Jacqueline Fernandez was accused of being an accomplice to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar in his illegal activities which involved money laundering and extortion. After the Enforcement Directorate (ED) found evidence of money being lent to the actress, they have been investigating her association to the case. Recent reports suggest that there has been a massive development in the case with the actress being named as one of the accused in the chargesheet filed by ED.
As per current reports, the Enforcement Directorate filed a supplementary chargesheet in the Delhi court after a thorough investigation. According to this, the ED has added her name as the accused after following the money trail. In their earlier statements, the ED had claimed that Sukesh Chandrashekhar had lent a lump sum to Jacqueline Fernandez as well as her family.
A total of Rs. 5.70 crores worth of gifts along with a horse worth Rs. 52 lacs as well as a Persian cat worth Rs. 9 lacs were given to Jacqueline from the extortion money, as per ED’s statement. Besides this, it also read that Sukesh Chandrashekhar also lent gifts and money to Jacqueline’s family.
The former statement also claimed that these gifts were not presented by Sukesh himself but by his criminal associate Pinky Irani who was also a friend of Jacqueline. On the other hand, the actress even though had confirmed her association with Pinky, had earlier maintained in her statements given to the ED that she was unaware of the criminal activities of Sukesh as well as Pinky Irani.
For the uninitiated, Sukesh Chandrashekar was arrested after he swindled Rs. 200 crores from Aditi Singh, wife of former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh. On the other hand, Jacqueline Fernandez is a popular Bollywood actress, who was last seen in a special appearance in the Kichcha Sudeepa starrer multi-lingual Vikrant Rona.
