After Skipping 3 Summons, Jacqueline Fernandez Deposes Before ED

Delhi: Jacqueline Fernandez finally deposed before Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials on Wednesday in connection with a Rs 200 crore-plus money laundering case being probed against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekar.

The Sri Lankan actress, who has been working in Bollywood films for several years, ignored three earlier summons before appearing for questioning around 3.30 pm on Wednesday.

The statement of Jacqueline, who had appeared before the ED in August relating to this case, had her statement recorded again under provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), ED officials said.

According a report in The Indian Express, the ED wants to confront the 36-year-old Jacqueline with new evidence and question her along with main accused Chandrashekhar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul.

Some funds were allegedly transferred from accounts linked to Chandrashekhar to family members of Jacqueline. Some bank accounts in India and Dubai are under the scanner.

Another actress Nora Fatehi deposed before ED last week and recorded her statement.

Chandrashekhar and his wife were arrested by Delhi Police on charges of cheating some people. While being lodged in a local jail, they were recently taken into custody by the ED.
