ED Files Chargesheet against Jacqueline Fernandez


Jacqueline Fernandez’s ordeals with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are only increasing by the day. The actress was repeatedly summoned by the agency in a money laundering case with alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Today it was claimed that the scam is as big as Rs 215 crore. Jacqueline reportedly received gifts worth Rs 10 crore out of that money and Sukesh even showered her family with luxury vehicles and goods worth many more crores, reveals the investigation. A chargesheet is filed by the ED against the actress in which she is named as the accused. Whether she faces an arrest or not, only time will tell. Jacqueline’s lawyer Prashant Patil issued this statement, ‘We have received information about the complaint being filed by the Enforcement Directorate only through media reports. There is no official communication from the Enforcement Directorate or the Hon’ble Court. My client has not received any copy of the complaint filed by the Enforcement Directorate. However, if the media reports are true, then it’s unfortunate that my client has been arraigned as an accused in the said case. She has always cooperated with the investigation agencies and attended all the summons issued till date. She has handed over all the information to the best of her ability to the ED. The agencies have failed to appreciate that she was cheated and conned into this matter. She is a victim of larger criminal conspiracy. Taking the entire prosecution case to be true for the sake of arguments, even then, no case is made out against Jacqueline under the scheme of Prevention of Money Laundering Act or any other Law in force. This is a case of malafide prosecution and my client shall take steps as required under law to protect her dignity and liberty.’
