ED summons Jacqueline Fernandez to appear for questioning in high-profile Rs 200 cr money laundering case

Money laundering case |  In a significant development, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued fresh summons to Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. 

Jacqueline Fernandez has been asked to appear before the ED in Delhi for questioning on Wednesday. 


Fernandez has been asked to depose before the investigators at ED headquarters in the national capital.

The case involves allegations that Sukesh Chandrasekhar, despite being imprisoned, orchestrated a large-scale fraud involving spoofed calls to dupe individuals, including high-profile targets, by pretending to be a government official offering assistance for a fee​. 

She was previously questioned multiple times by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials regarding her links with Chandrashekhar, who is accused of extorting large sums from various individuals and using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle. The ED aims to investigate Fernandez's association with Chandrashekhar and her possible involvement in money laundering activities.

Fernandez is alleged to have received gifts from Chandrashekhar, which were reportedly purchased with extortion money. She faces accusations of being complicit in money laundering but maintains that she is an innocent victim of Chandrashekhar's schemes.

Chandrashekhar is accused of extorting Rs 200 crore from Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh.
