Earlier, the EOW had grilled Jacqueline Fernandez for eight hours at its office in connection with the case. But both the actors have no direct connection with this case. Special Commissioner of Police (EOW) Ravindra Yadav told ANI that Sukesh would try to influence the Bollywood actresses as he was having a huge wealth of properties which he acquired through extortion.
Also, in a charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate, Jacqueline was named as an accused. Reportedly, the actress was in touch with the con man even after she got to know about his crimes. On the other hand, the actress had filed a plea before the Appellate Authority of PMLA wherein she stated, “The approach of ED, unfortunately, seems to be highly mechanical and motivated. The plea also stated that other celebrities who received gifts from Sukesh were made witnesses while Jacqueline was mentioned as an accused. “This clearly shows a malafide, motivated and biased approach on the part of the investigation authority which cannot be ignored.”
The Special Commissioner of Police – EOW, Ravinder Yadav had told ANI, “There is more trouble for Jacqueline Fernandez as she did not cut ties with Sukesh Chandrasekhar even after knowing his criminal antecedents. But Nora Fatehi did disconnect herself once she suspected that something is fishy.”
