Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s lawyer, Anant Malik has made a claim that film actor Jacqueline Fernandez and Sukesh were dating each other. Malik claimed that “Jacqueline and Sukesh were dating, these are my instructions, this is straight from the horse’s mouth.” When asked about actor and dancer Nora Fatehi, Malik said, “Nora Fatehi claims to be a victim but she was gifted a BMW car.”
Fernandez appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in connection with an over Rs 200 crore money laundering case being probed against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekar. The actor had skipped its summons at least thrice earlier.
Fernandez had once appeared before the federal agency in August and recorded her statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in this case.
The agency wants to understand some trail of funds and transactions that are allegedly linked to Jacqueline in this case. Nora Fatehi has also recorded her statement with the ED in this case.
Fatehi’s representative claims that she is a victim in the case and being a witness, she is cooperating and helping the officers in the investigation.
Chandrashekhar his wife Leena Maria Paul were recently arrested by the ED while they were already lodged in a local jail by the Delhi Police for cheating some people, including some high-profile individuals like former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh.
Reportedly Chandrashekhar is a “known conman” and is being probed by the Delhi Police in a case of alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and extortion to the tune of about Rs 200 crore. “Chandrasekhar is the mastermind of this fraud. He has been part of the crime world since the age of 17. He has multiple FIRs against him and is presently lodged in Rohini jail (in connection with the Delhi Police case),” said ED.
Despite being in the jail Chandrashekhar “did not stop conning” people, the ED said. “He (with a cellphone procured illegally in prison) with the help of technology, made spoof calls to dupe people as the numbers displayed on the called party’s phone number belonged to senior government officers.
“While speaking (from prison) to these people, he claimed to be a government officer offering to help people for a price,” the concluded.
