Jacqueline Fernandez quizzed for 10 hours in money laundering case

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 09 Dec 2021, 12:36 am

New Delhi/IBNS: Actor Jacqueline Fernandez was on Wednesday questioned for more than ten hours by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a Rs. 200 crore money laundering probe involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others. 

Her questioning will continue on Thursday.

She arrived at the probe agency's office in Delhi at 11 am and left the office around 9.30 pm.

The actor deposed before the federal agency in October also after skipping its summons at least thrice earlier.

On Dec 5, the agency had stopped Fernandez at the Mumbai airport from flying abroad.

The agency suspects she is a "beneficiary" in the alleged money laundering generated by Chandrashekhar after conning and extorting money from some high-profile people.

The actor's spokesperson had earlier said she was testifying before the agency as a witness.

"Jacqueline Fernandez is being called to testify as a witness by the ED. She has duly recorded her statements and in future will also be completely cooperating with the agency in the investigations," the spokesperson was quoted as saying NDTV.

The ED last week also filed a chargesheet before a special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court in New Delhi and named Chandrashekhar, his wife Leena Maria Paul and six others.

It had also alleged in the charge sheet that Chandrashekhar claimed that he gifted Fernandez numerous costly gifts, including some Persian cats and a horse.
