Jacqueline Fernandez Summoned By ED Today

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning on Wednesday in connection with a Rs 200-crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, according to official sources cited by news agency PTI.

The 38-year-old Sri Lankan-origin actress has been interrogated multiple times by the federal agency in relation to a case involving alleged fraud against prominent individuals, including the wives of former Ranbaxy promoters Shivinder Singh and Malvinder Singh, totaling Rs 200 crore.

The ED alleges that Chandrashekhar deceived the Singh brothers’ wives and used illegally obtained funds, or ‘proceeds of crime,’ to purchase gifts for Jacqueline Fernandez.

In a chargesheet filed in 2022, the investigative agency claimed that the actress received valuable items, jewelry, and expensive gifts from Chandrashekhar, despite being aware of his criminal background.

Jacqueline Fernandez has maintained that she was unaware of Chandrashekhar’s criminal activities and asserts her innocence.
