Delhi court starts hearing arguments on charges against Jacqueline Fernandez in Rs 200 crore money laundering case

A Delhi court on Wednesday commenced hearing on the charges related to the case involving Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is one of the accused in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case in which conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar is the prime accused.

Jacqueline appeared before Special Judge Shailendra Malik of Patiala House Courts.

On November 15, 2022, the court had granted pre-arrest bail to the accused.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had recently filed its second supplementary charge sheet naming Jacqueline as an accused. Jacqueline and another Bollywood personality, Nora Fatehi, have recorded their statements as witnesses in the case.

Earlier, assets and fixed deposits worth Rs 7.2 crore belonging to Jacqueline were attached by the ED, which termed these gifts and properties as “proceeds” of crime received by the actor.

In February, the ED had filed its first supplementary charge sheet against Pinky Irani, an alleged aide of Chandrashekhar, who introduced him to Bollywood actors. It had been alleged in the charge sheet that Pinky used to choose expensive gifts for Jacqueline and drop them at her residence after Chandrashekhar made the payments.

In December 2021, the probe agency had filed the first charge sheet in this matter.

As per official sources, Chandrashekhar has spent around Rs 20 crore on different models and Bollywood celebrities. A few had, however, refused to accept gifts from him.
