Jacqueline Fernandez a witness in Rs 200 cr money laundering case, says her spokesperson: Report
New Delhi/IBNS: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has called Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez to testify as a witness in connection with a money laundering case of over Rs 200 crore, media reports said.
According to news agency PTI, her spokesperson said on Saturday, "Jacqueline Fernandez is being called to testify as a witness by the ED. She has duly recorded her statements and in the future will also be completely co-operating with the agency in the investigations.
"Jacqueline also categorically denies alleged slanderous statements made about relationship with the involved couple."
The statement came two days after Fernandez appeared before the central agency after skipping its summons at least thrice earlier.
On Wednesday, the agency recorded her statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with a money laundering case filed against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul.
She had appeared before ED in August in connection with the case and had recorded her statement.
Actor and dancer Nora Fatehi, too, had appeared before the agency last week in connection with the same case.
Sources said she was summoned by the agency in a probe related to conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar and actress Leena Maria Paul, who have been arrested recently by Delhi Police on charges of cheating some people, including some high-profile individuals like former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh's wife Aditi Singh.
In August, the ED had raided some of Chandrashekhar's premises and seized a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, Rs 82.5 lakh cash and more than a dozen luxury cars.
It had claimed in a statement that Chandrashekhar is a "known conman" and is being probed by the Delhi Police in a case of alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and extortion to the tune of about Rs 200 crore.
