Nora Fatehi appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Delhi regarding the Sukesh Chandrasekhar case. ED has made Nora a witness in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case, while Jacqueline Fernandez is an accused. Both these Bollywood celebrities have been called several times by the investigating agencies for questioning.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) recently filed its second supplementary charge sheet naming Jacqueline as an accused. The court had on September 26 granted him interim protection from arrest. Nora Fatehi had recorded her statement as a witness in the case.
In September, Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi was summoned to the office of the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police to join the probe into the Rs 200 crore extortion case involving billionaire swindler Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Chandrashekhar’s aide Pinky Irani was also in the EOW office then. Both were confronted by the EOW officers.
Earlier, the ED had attached Jacqueline’s assets and fixed deposits worth Rs 7.2 crore. The probe agency termed these gifts and properties as “proceeds” of crime received by the actor.
In February, the ED had filed its first supplementary charge sheet against Chandrashekhar’s alleged associate Pinky Irani, who introduced him to Bollywood actors. It was alleged in the chargesheet that Pinky used to pick expensive gifts for Jacqueline and drop them at her residence after Chandrasekhar paid for them.
Last December, the probe agency had filed the first charge sheet in the case. According to reports, Chandrasekhar has spent around Rs 20 crore on different models and Bollywood celebrities. Some refused to accept gifts from him.
Chandrasekhar was arrested for allegedly cheating and extorting money from some high-profile people, including Aditi Singh, wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh. Several Bollywood actors and models have been questioned by the Enforcement Directorate for their alleged links with Chandrashekhar. In April last year, Chandrasekhar was arrested in a money laundering case linked to the 2017 Election Commission bribery case, allegedly involving a former AIADMK leader, among others.
