Jacqueline Fernandez and Pinky Irani are being probed as suspects by the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police after being summoned in connection with a money laundering of Rs 200 crore. According to information received from sources, Pinky Irani had apparently introduced the Bollywood actress to thug Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

Sources close to the development told Republic that Jacqueline had a face-off with Pinky Irani in the extortion case filed against Chandrashekhar by the EOW. Pinky had reportedly bought expensive gifts on behalf of Thugs for the Bollywood action. Sources also reveal that Pinky Irani “assured Jacqueline” that Sukesh had no criminal history.

Officials prepare a list of 55 questions for the Bollywood actor

Officials said they have prepared a list of 55 questions for Jacqueline to answer. The questions were based on his relationship with Sukesh Chandrashekhar and the gifts he received from him. He will also be asked how many times he had contacted Sukesh on mobile phone during that time.

Jacqueline, named as accused number 10 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), has been informed that her investigation may extend for a few days and she has been asked to stay in the national capital. Earlier, the Bollywood actress was named in the ED’s chargesheet in the money laundering case related to Sukesh. The chargesheet stated that Jacqueline ignored criminal cases against Sukesh and got involved in financial transactions with him.

The agency had registered a money laundering case in connection with the First Information Report (FIR) registered by the Delhi Police in the alleged scam. The ED had said that Fernandez’s statements were recorded in August and October last year, where he admitted to accepting gifts from Sukesh.

It also claimed that the actress used the proceeds of crime and brought expensive gifts for herself and her family members in India and abroad which amount to the offense of money laundering under Section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar is currently lodged in a Delhi jail and has more than 10 criminal cases registered against him. The thug, hailing from Bengaluru, Karnataka, has been accused of demanding extortion of Rs 200 crore from the wife of a jailed former Ranbaxy owner on the pretext of getting her husband out on bail.
