Jacqueline Fernandez becomes victim of INR2000m money laundering racket

Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez was called in as a witness yesterday in connection to an INR2000 million money laundering case and came out as a victim of the same racket, reported All India. According to sources from the Enforcement Directorate, the 36-year-old star fell under Sukesh Chandrashekar’s radar – the alleged mastermind of the racket – through his partner Leena Paul. "She is not an accused, but is being examined as a witness in the case against conman Sukesh," the outlet quoted the sources as saying. These sources went on to claim that Jacqueline had shared crucial details during her session with the Enforcement Directorate, which lasted for over five hours. The investigation has revealed that a top Bollywood actor was also targeted by Sukesh. But the actor's name will not be made public due to security reasons. On August 24, the agency had said it had seized a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, with INR8.25 million in cash and over a dozen luxury cars in connection with the case against Sukesh. The case is based on an FIR filed by Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing against him and others over alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating, and extortion to the tune of about INR2000 million. "Sukesh is the mastermind of this fraud. He has multiple FIRs against him and is presently lodged at the Rohini jail," the Enforcement Directorate said in their statement last week. It is also alleged that he took money from TTV Dhinakaran, leader of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhakam's 'Amma' faction, to bribe Election Commission officials in connection with the dispute over the party's 'two leaves' symbol.
