The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday named actor Jacqueline Fernandez as an accused in a money-laundering case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, NDTV reported.

The agency named Fernandez as an accused in a supplementary chargesheet filed before a Delhi court.

Chandrashekhar was arrested by the Delhi Police on August 7 for allegedly extorting around Rs 215 crore from Shivinder Singh, a former promoter of pharmaceutical giant Ranbaxy, and his wife Aditi Singh. He had allegedly impersonated the Union home secretary, law secretary and an officer in the prime minister’s office while speaking to them.


Enforcement Directorate, which is probing the money trail in the case, alleges that Chandrashekhar used the money gained by cheating and extorting high-profile individuals to buy gifts for Fernandez.

“Sukesh Chandrashekhar had given various gifts worth Rs 5.71 crore to Jacqueline Fernandez from the proceeds of crime generated by criminal activities including extortion,” the Enforcement Directorate said. “Chandrashekhar had put Pinky Irani, his long-time associate and co-accused in this case to deliver the said gifts to her.”

The investigating agency also claimed that Fernandez was aware that the gifts given to her were the proceeds of a crime.
