The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Bollywood actors Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi for questioning in connection with a money laundering case as reported by a news agency citing officials familiar with the matter. While Nora Fatehi was asked to be present before ED on Thursday itself. Fernandez will be joining the probe tomorrow (i.e. Friday).
The Ed case is based on an FIR filed by Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) against conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar who is accused of cheating and extorting the wife of a businessman of ₹200 crore.
The new agency also shared some pictures where Nora Fatehi could be seen reaching the ED office to cooperate with the investigation. In another update, ANI informed, citing sources, that Jacqueline Fernandez is expected to be questioned tomorrow in connection with the investigation.
This isn’t the first time ED has called Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez in connection with a money-laundering investigation. She had already been questioned by the agency in August in connection with the investigation into alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is suspected of being involved in a multi-crore extortion racket.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar is a 27-year-old accused of duping people in Chennai and Bengaluru of several crores in order to live a lavish lifestyle.
In connection with the money laundering case filed against him, the ED’seized’ a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai and several luxury cars. Chandrasekhar is also suspected of conducting an extortion racket from the Tihar Jail in Delhi.
