According to the Enforcement Directorate’s chargesheet, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez was aware of conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s criminal past and “made up a bogus story” to get out of being investigated in a multi-million dollar money laundering case. In February 2021, she learned about Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s identity and criminal past from her hairdresser Shaan.

The Enforcement Directorate, which is investigating the money trail in a ₹ 200 crore extortion case against the conman, listed Jacqueline Fernandez as an accused earlier this month. According to the chargesheet, Jacqueline Fernandez acknowledged accepting gifts from the conman, including five watches, 20 pieces of jewelry, 65 pairs of shoes, 47 dresses, 32 bags, 4 Hermes bags, nine paintings, and a Versace dinnerware set.

According to the agency, Sukesh Chandrashekhar gave Jacqueline Fernandez’s parents two cars in April 2021. Although, she failed to mention this when questioned. She refused to acknowledge that Sukesh had given her property in Welgana, Sri Lanka. She allegedly also asked her staff to delete any information on the conman on their phone.

The Enforcement Directorate believes that Jacqueline Fernandez continuously alleged that she had, in reality, been a victim of Sukesh. According to the agency, she erased substantial evidence from her phone after wiping it clean, and this constituted evidence tampering. According to the complaint, Chandrashekhar gave the actor presents totaling 7.12 crore rupees. It includes 1.26 crore to her sister, 15 lakh to her brother in Australia, and gifts totaling 5.71 crore rupees.

Jacqueline’s Stance

Jacqueline Fernandez admitted to receiving multiple things from the conman. It includes four bags each from Gucci, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dior, three pairs of shoes each from Louis Vuitton and Louboutin, two Gucci outfits, perfumes, four cats, a Mini Cooper, two diamond earrings, and a bracelet set with multiple colored diamonds when she was interrogated alongside the conman.

Meanwhile, Sukesh Chandrashekhar was detained by the Delhi Police on suspicion of extorting money from Aditi Singh and Shivender Singh. They are former promoters of the giant pharmaceutical company Ranbaxy, totaling over 215 crores.
