Jacqueline Fernandez’s name has resurfaced in a high-profile money laundering case after what appears to be a photo of her with “extortionist” Sukesh Chandrasekhar leaked online.
In August, Jacqueline was summoned by the Directorate of Enforcement for the first time in a money laundering case of INR2 billion. She was interrogated for four hours a few days after fellow interpreter Nora Fatehi was summoned in the same case.
The case came after businessman Shivinder Singh’s wife, Aditi, filed a complaint, according to Indian media reports. Aditi claimed they offered to help him secure Shivinder’s bail in exchange for money. Aditi paid INR 200 million in 30 installments and was told the money would be used to finance BJP campaigns.
Sukesh Chandrasekhar, already mentioned in 21 fraud cases and housed in Rohini jail at the time, was charged with cheating on Shivinder’s family. The central agency raided an INR 8.25 million waterfront mansion in Chennai and several luxury cars in connection with the money laundering case against Sukesh. Shoes, clothing and bags from high-end brands such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel worth INR200 million were also seized.
There had been rumors that Jacqueline was dating Sukesh at the time of her questioning. And now, a leaked photo this week has fueled speculation. According to some reports, Jacqueline was scammed by Sukesh, but other reports suggest that Sukesh used to organize private jets and send expensive gifts to Jacqueline.
According to Suresh’s attorney, Jacqueline was in a relationship with Sukesh, claims that were denied by Jacqueline’s team.
However, no comment has yet been made on the veracity of Jacqueline’s image.
Jacqueline Fernandez, originally from Sri Lanka, rose to fame in Bollywood with Murder 2 in 2011. She was last seen in Bhoot Police.
