ED Summons Jacqeuelline Fernandez Again in Sukesh Chandrashekhar Money Laundering Case

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Bollywood actress Jacqeuelline Fernandez once more in connection with the money laundering case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Following this development, Fernandez’s lawyer, Prashant Patil, has arrived at the ED headquarters. Patil stated that the ED has filed a charge sheet in the case and that they are expecting an email by 2:30 PM today, specifying the day and time for Fernandez’s appearance.

Patil mentioned that during their meeting with ED officials, they offered to provide any necessary documents. However, the ED has insisted on Jacqeuelline’s physical presence. The email from the ED, expected by 2:30 PM, will detail the date and time for her appearance. Patil added that if the ED requests her presence today, Fernandez will comply and appear at the headquarters.

On Wednesday, the ED summoned Jacqeuelline Fernandez for questioning regarding the high-profile Rs 200 crore money laundering case linked to Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Fernandez has previously been questioned multiple times by ED officials due to her connections with Chandrashekhar, who is accused of extorting substantial sums of money from various individuals.

The ED aims to investigate Fernandez’s association with Chandrashekhar and her involvement in the money laundering case. She is also accused of accepting gifts from Chandrashekhar, allegedly purchased with extorted money, and of being an accomplice in the money laundering activities. Sukesh Chandrashekhar is accused of extorting Rs 200 crore from Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh.

In a related legal matter, the Delhi High Court has asked the ED to respond to Fernandez’s plea seeking to quash the FIR and charge sheet filed against her. The ED has opposed Fernandez’s plea, noting that she has not denied the allegations of receiving gifts worth Rs 7.12 crore from Chandrashekhar, including gifts worth Rs 1.12 crore given to her sister in Sri Lanka.
