The Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police questioned actor Nora Fatehi on Friday for almost seven hours at their headquarters in Mandir Marg in Delhi about the Rs 200 extortion case against scammer Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Special CP (Crime and EoW) Ravindra Singh Yadav informed Indian Express that it has summoned 4-5 people including Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez for accusing Sukesh of blackmailing the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh. “Nora Fatehi was called yesterday in connection with a case of Sukesh and she was questioned for around 7 hours. During questioning, she has cooperated, but still there are a few unanswered questions. She told the police she was not aware that the event where she was invited to in Chennai had links to this crime syndicate… But everything will have to be seen, how were the car and gifts that she had received used. We will reach a conclusion only with a proper probe,” Yadav said.
“She came at around 11 am and left the office around 6 pm. She recorded her statement and the police asked her about the gifts presented by Sukesh to her,” an officer said.
Sukesh, his wife Leena Maria Paul and 12 others were charged by Delhi police last year for extorting Rs 200 from Shivinder Singh’s wife for a year while both were detained at Rohini prison as part of the trial. The Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) was used to record Nora Fatehi’s statement after the General Department of Law Enforcement (ED) called her to testify in a lawsuit against Sukesh and his wife Leena. .
