The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Bollywood actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi in connection with an alleged Rs 200-crore money-laundering case. While Nora appeared for questioning on Thursday, Jacqueline was called on Friday. However, citing personal reasons, the actress did not appear before the ED. Third summon for Jacqueline has been sent for tomorrow. The actress has been asked to appear before ED office in Delhi at 11 am on Saturday (16 October), reports India TV’s Atul Singh.
Fernandez, 36, once appeared before the federal agency in August and recorded her statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in this case.
It is understood that the agency wants to confront her with Chandrashekhar and his actor wife, Leena Maria Paul.
ED is looking into various people who are directly or indirectly connected to this case. Reports suggest that the ED is looking into the possibility that money was invested abroad and it was led by Chandrasekhar, who is accused in 21 cases.
This ED case is based on an FIR filed by Delhi Police`s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) against Sukesh Chandrasekhar who is accused of cheating and extorting Aditi Singh, wife of the former promoter of Religare Enterprises, Shivinder Mohan Singh, who was arrested in October 2019 in a case related to alleged misappropriation of funds at Religare Finvest Ltd.
