Jacqueline Fernandez has been named as an accused in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. In a supplementary charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate, Jacqueline has been named as an accused earlier this month. The ED in April provisionally attached Rs 7.27 crore funds of the actor under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) apart from Rs 15 lakh in cash as the agency called these funds as "proceeds of crime".

"Sukesh Chandrashekhar had given various gifts worth Rs 5.71 crore to Jacqueline Fernandez from the proceeds of crime generated by criminal activities including extortion," the ED had then said in a statement.


In the latest development, Jacqueline has been summoned by Delhi's Patiala House Court. She has been asked to appear before the Court on September 26 in connection with the case.

ED charge sheet details 

Below are the top points from the ED charge sheet that names Jacqueline Fernandez as an accused in the money laundering case. 

--  "Investigation so far has revealed that the accused actor is directly or indirectly involved in the proceeds of crime."

--  "Jacqueline Fernandez consciously chose to overlook his (Sukesh Chandrashekhar) criminal past and continued to indulge in financial transactions with him. Not only Jacqueline but even her family members & friends benefitted from their relationship financially."

-- ED also concluded that the lure of money ensured that the criminal history of the person she was engaging with did not matter. Further, accused Jacqueline Fernandez has consistently shifted her stance with regard to the gifts being received by her & her relatives.
