Sukesh Money-Laundering Case: Jacqueline Withdraws Plea To Travel Abroad

New Delhi: Jacqueline Fernandez has withdrawn her plea to travel abroad in connection with the Sukesh Chandrasekhar money-laundering case.

The Sri Lanka-born Bollywood actress had approached Patiala House Court here on Tuesday seeking permission to travel to her country of birth Bahrain, following which the court asked Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is investigating the case, to submit its response.

Opposing Jacqueline’s plea, the lawyer for ED argued that she’s an actress and a foreign national, and the case in which she is being tried is at a crucial stage.

Jacqueline’s lawyer contended that ED hasn’t completed its investigation.

The judge then asked Jacqueline’s counsel whether he wants to withdraw the application or wait for a judicial order.

The lawyer finally withdrew the plea.

Jacqueline has been made an accused in the Rs 200-crore money-laundering case centred around jailed conman Sukesh.

Sukesh is alleged to have splurged gifts on Jacqueline and other actresses like Nora Fatehi.
