New Delhi, August 24: In her response to the authorities who have attached several of her Fixed Deposits (FDs) in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act case, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez stated that her FDs have no connection to conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar and were created even before the conman 'existed.'

Fernandez noted in a response to PMLA adjudicating authorities that the FDs attached in accordance with the impugned order had no connection with the crime and were not created using the alleged proceeds of crime.

"The actor claimed that deposits are from the actor's own legitimate sources of income and much before in time from even knowing that the main accused Chandrashekhar even existed in this world," Enforcement Directorate said.

The record and the authority's statement clearly establish that she was coerced, conned, and forced into accepting the said gift. People who received such items other than her are named “ "Witness" in the lawsuit, she claims.
