Actor Jacqueline Fernandez summoned by Delhi Police in conman case

Delhi Police served notice on Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez for questioning on 12 September in connection with a multi-million dollar money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. On September 26, she was also summoned to a Delhi court on the same matter.

Jacqueline Fernandez was listed as charged earlier this month by the Directorate General of Law Enforcement, which is looking into money trails in the extortion case of 200 crores. The actor was listed as a defendant in an additional indictment filed by the investigative agency in the Delhi court.

Delhi Police arrested Chandrashekhar for allegedly extorting more than 215 crores from Aditi Singh and Shivender  Singh, members of the former promoters of Ranbaxy Pharmaceutical Company. So far, the investigating agency has detained eight people in the case, including Chandrashekhar’s wife, Leena Maria Paul, and Pinky Irani.

During the confrontation with the scammer, Jacqueline Fernandez claimed to have received four bags of Gucci, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Dior, three pairs of Louis Vuitton and Louboutin shoes, two Gucci outfits, perfume, four cats, one Mini Cooper, two diamonds earrings and a bracelet encrusted with colored diamonds.
