Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday in connection with a money laundering investigation lodged against multimillionaire alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. She will be recording her statement as a witness in the case. Fernandez has been questioned by the ED in this case earlier also. The questioning is happening at the MTNL building in Central Delhi where ED has an office. A woman official along with five others will record her statement.
Fernandez was stopped at the Mumbai Airport by the immigration authorities on December 5 while she was on her way to Delhi. The authorities were acting on a Look Out Circular (LoC) issued by the ED against her as it feared that she might flee the country. She was quizzed at the Mumbai airport for hours and then let go. On Monday, the ED once again sent her summons to join the ongoing probe.
The Enforcement Directorate had on Saturday (December 4) filed a charge sheet under the PMLA Act naming a few Bollywood actors, including Fernandez, as witnesses. The court had taken cognisance of the charge sheet and had asked the agency to supply the charge sheet copy to all the accused.
The next date in the charge sheet matter is December 13. The ED officials were tight-lipped over the matter.
Apart from Jacqueline, another Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi has also recorded her statement as a witness in the case.
