Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi will be questioned on Thursday by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police in connection with a Rs 200 crore extortion case linked to jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, media reports said.

Jacqueline Fernandez, who has been named by the ED in its chargesheet in the case, was questioned for nearly 8 hours in the office of the Economic Offences Wing.

Pinky Irani, who was allegedly paid in crores to introduce Jacqueline to conman Sukesh, was also questioned on Wednesday.

However, the EOW found some inconsistencies between Pinky and Jacqueline's responses, and both of them will be questioned again, the police said, according to the media reports.

It was also said that there was no direct link between Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez in this case but the police want to question Pinky Irani and Nora Fatehi together.

The ED has accused  Jacqueline of being aware that Chandrashekhar was involved in extortion and cheating.

The agency has said the actor overlooked his criminal activities and illegal source of his money and continued to indulge in financial transactions with him.

According to media reports, Jacqueline Fernandez 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, according to the chargesheet.
