New Delhi: In connection with a Rs 200 crore money laundering case featuring B-town actress Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi as witnesses, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed its first prosecution charge against multi-millionaire conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and seven others.
The charge sheet was filed in Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh's court. Before filing the charge sheet, the ED sought legal advice from the prosecution and senior officials. The prosecution complaint, which is essentially a charge sheet, contains statements from Fernandez and Nora and spans over 7,000 pages.
The charge sheet was accepted by the court, and a hearing date was set for December 13. The court ordered the agency to make the charge sheet public to all of the defendants. The ED case is based on a Delhi Police investigation in which Sukesh was accused of extorting roughly Rs 200 crore from an industrialist's wife. The funds were afterwards laundered through hawala and used to purchase cryptocurrency.
