Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi have been in the news for the past few months due to the case of 'scumbag' Sukesh Chandrasekhar. There are reports that the police want action against Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi under MCOCA but the legal cell did not give the green signal. According to media reports, a chargesheet has been filed against 11 including 'scumbag' Sukesh Chandrashekhar and his wife actress Leena Maria, who spread the elusive web of fraud from Rohini Jail, under MCOCA (Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act 1999).
The chargesheet was also produced before Patiala House court in December 2021. Police sources claim that the Economic Offences Branch (EOW) was also trying to impose MCOCA on actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi. But the legal cell did not approve of it. The opinion was that gifts were also given to both of them. It is not necessary to know the money with which the gift is being given. In this way, both have escaped the purview of a stringent law like MCOCA.
What is MCOCA?: MCOCA i.e. Maharashtra Organized Crime Control Act. Under which the offenders who are part of organized crime are investigated. Both crime and criminals survived in Maharashtra in the 90s. Then there was a need for a law that would help prevent organized crimes. In that case, the Maharashtra Government has made MCOCA. The Law has been enacted in 1999 to prevent crimes that are not possible to commit alone and which require planning to be committed. In 2002, the Delhi Government also implemented MCOCA in the capital. It is called a very strict and stringent law. In sections of the IPC, when a case is registered against someone, the criminals break them and escape, but if nominated under MCOCA, the offender does not get bail easily. The law is said to have been able to break the syndicate of criminals who habitually commit crimes.
