According to sources, valuables and property which is a fixed deposit worth Rs 7.27 crore have been attached by the agency.
Conman Chandrasekhar reportedly gave Rs 20 crore worth of gifts to models and Bollywood celebrities. Some of them refused to take gifts from him. However, Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline are believed to have accepted expensive items as gifts from Chandrasekhar. He reportedly gave Jacqueline a lot of luxury gifts which included Gucci outfits for gym wear, Gucci shoes, a Rolex watch, 15 pairs of earrings, 5 Birkin bags, Hermes bangles and LV bags. He also gave a mini chopper to Jacqueline which she returned, as per the charge sheet. She has been summoned by the ED for interrogation several times.
Jacqueline is currently acting as the witness in the money laundering case against the conman. She has recorded her testimony in the Rs 200 crore PMLA case. Not just Jacqueline, Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi has also recorded her statement as a witness. When asked why they were not made accused in the case, the source said that they were not aware of Chandrasekhar's criminal background.
Previously, Nora told the investigating agencies that they were 'free to seize the BMW car gifted to her by Sukesh Chandrashekhar'.
