Trouble for Actor Jacqueline Fernandez, ED Issues Summons in PMLA Case

Jacqueline Fernandez

The Directorate of Enforcement (ED) has summoned bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez for a fresh round of questioning on Wednesday in a money laundering case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, as per sources.

The Sri Lankan-origin Bollywood actor has been questioned by the federal agency in the past in this case, which involves the alleged cheating of high-profile individuals, including Aditi Singh, wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh, to the tune of about Rs 200 crore.

The central probe agency has alleged that Chandrashekhar used these “proceeds of crime” or illegal money to purchase gifts for Fernandez. In a charge sheet filed in 2022, it was stated that the actor was “enjoying valuables, jewellery, and costly gifts provided by Chandrashekhar despite knowing about his criminal antecedents.”

The actor has been questioned at least five times by the ED in this case earlier. Fernandez has consistently maintained that she is innocent and had no knowledge of Chandrashekhar’s alleged criminal activities.
