Pre-arrest bail granted for Jacqueline Fernandez in a money-laundering case

NEW DELHI: In the Rs 200 crore money-laundering case involving multimillionaire conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, which is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate, a Delhi court on Tuesday granted actress Jacqueline Fernandez pre-arrest release.

The order, which had been reserved for last week, was given by Additional Sessions Judge Shailender Malik. Later in the day, a detailed copy of the order will be made public.

Jacqueline had been charged in the ED's recent second supplemental charge sheet. The court had granted Jacqueline temporary protection from arrest on September 26. As witnesses in the lawsuit, Jacqueline and Nora Fatehi, another well-known figure from Bollywood, have recorded their statements.

Fixed deposits belonging to Jacqueline that were worth Rs 7.2 crore were previously seized by the ED. The investigation agency referred to the gifts and properties that Jacqueline and Nora received as "proceeds" of crime.
An accused aide of Chandrashekhar who allegedly connected him to Bollywood actresses, Pinky Irani, was the subject of the ED's first supplemental charge sheet, which was filed in February.

In the charge sheet, it was claimed that Pinky used to pick out pricey presents for Jacqueline and deliver them to her house after Chandrashekhar had completed the payments.

The initial charge sheet in this case was presented to the court of Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh by the investigating agency in December of last year.

According to government sources, Chandrashekhar has spent about 20 crore on various Bollywood stars and models. Some people had turned down his offerings.
