Jacqueline Fernandez: Recently, Famous Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez questioned the ED in a money laundering case against a conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar wherein she has been found accused.
In an appeal, Jacqueline’s lawyer Prashant Patil asked why Noora Fatehi has been named as wintness but Jacqueline is accused in the same case. Noora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez both received expensive gifts from Sukesh Chandrashekhar, but Jacqueline is the only one who has been named accused by the ED.
Last year, Noora Fatehi was made a witness in Rs 200 crore money laundering case. Jacqueline questioned the ED and argued that she is not the only one who received expensive gifts from the conman then why only she has been targeted and made accused?
She said “I am a woman cheated under the influence of Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s gifts and ‘political power. The loss I have suffered cannot be measured in money.”
While accusing the ED of discrimination Jacqueline said “Nora Fatehi and some other celebs were also duped by Sukesh Chandrashekhar by giving gifts, but they were made witnesses and I was made an accused. This clearly shows that I am being acted upon in the wrong spirit. All this money that the ED has seized is earned by my hard work. My FD has no connection with Chandrashekhar and was created even before the thug existed.”
After holding Jacqueline Fernandez’s responsible for receiving expensive gifts, the probing agency named Fernandez as accused in the charge sheet. In response, the actress filed an appeal on August 22, 2022. “She is a victim of the modus operandi adopted by the main accused, Mr Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Sukesh Chandrasekhar has cheated Jacqueline. If you look at the records, it clearly tells about this deception. Unfortunately, the ED’s attitude seems to be quite mechanical and motivated by biases, so no one is looking at the fact that what the respondent (Jacqueline) has lost cannot be counted with money.”
