Earlier today it was reported that Sri Lankan beauty queen and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez had been summoned by the Delhi police yet again next month. Besides this, a Delhi court as well has summoned Jackie later in September, both in connection with the Sukesh Chandrashekar Rs. 200 cr money laundering case. This came after the investigative agency filed a new chargesheet which cited the actress as one of the accused.
Now as per details mentioned by the investigative agency Jacqueline Fernandez was aware of Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s case, and had apparently ‘cooked up’ a false story to escape the investigations in the money laundering case. As per reports, the Enforcement Directorate in its chargesheet also claims that the actress was aware that the accused was married, “Jacqueline Fernandez was well aware about the criminal antecedents of Sukesh Chandrashekhar and also the fact that Leena Maria Paul is his wife in February 2021”.
Further the chargesheet also states that she consciously chose to overlook his criminal past and continued to indulge in financial transactions with him, mentioning that it was her hairstylist who informed her of Sukesh’s identity in February 2021. “Despite this, Jacqueline Fernandez ignored this fact and continued the relationship with Sukesh and also received, used and enjoyed the financial benefits from Sukesh, which are nothing but proceeds of crime,” claims the chargesheet.
Talking about Jacqueline’s attempts to escape as a victim, the Enforcement Directorate further states in its chargesheet that though she claimed to be a victim, “During investigation she has failed to provide any substantial material to establish the victimisation by Sukesh.” Further adding that she wiped her phone clean, deleting crucial evidence and this counted as tampering with evidence.
For the uninitiated, actress Jacqueline Fernandes has been embroiled in criminal proceedings involving Sukesh Chandrashekhar in connection with a Rs. 200 cr money laundering case. As per the Enforcement Directorate which has named Jacqueline as one of the accused, the actress admitted to receiving five watches, 20 pieces of jewellery, 65 pairs of shoes, 47 dresses, 32 bags, 4 Hermes bags, nine paintings and one Versace crockery set as gifts from the conman. Besides this, the agency also asserts that Chandrashekhar gifted two cars to Jacqueline’s parents in April 2021, which she did not disclose during her questioning. However, after being confronted with evidence she admit that Sukesh had bought her a property at Welgana in Sri Lanka.
