The Enforcement Directorate is currently investigating a money laundering case involving jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. In the Rs 200 crore extortion case, the ED has been questioning Jacqueline Fernandez. Now, there's a new development in the case.
According to reports, the ED has apparently named Jacqueline an accused in the supplementary chargesheet filed in a Delhi court. As of now, Jacqueline's team and the ED are yet to issue an official statement regarding this.
Earlier, the ED had seized Jacqueline's passport. The investigating agency also attached assets worth Rs 7 crores in the past. The actress has been questioned in this case by the ED a number of times in the past. In her statement recorded in August and October last year, Jacqueline had confessed to having “received” gifts from Chandrashekhar like three designer bags from Gucci, Chanel, two Gucci outfits for gym wear, a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes, two pairs of diamond earrings and a bracelet of multi-coloured stones and two Hermes bracelets from Chandrashekhar. She also told that she returned a Mini Cooper car that she had received from him. Apart from the gifts, he had also given funds close to $ 173,000 and around 27,000 Australian Dollars to close family members of Jacqueline.
As per reports, Jacqueline and Sukesh were dating.
