Here Is How Jacqueline Landed Into Legal Trouble In 215 Crore Extortion Case

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who has been accused by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Rs 215 crore extortion case, recently shared an inspirational quote through her Instagram profile. In that post, Jacqueline addressed herself by expressing hope and confidence in herself.

In her post, Jacqueline added, “Dear me, I deserve all good things, I’m powerful, I accept myself, it’ll be okay. I’m strong, I will achieve my goals and dreams, I can do it.

Jacqueline landed into legal trouble recently when the Enforcement Directorate named her as an accused in Rs 215 crore extortion case. In that case, the prime accused has been identified as conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

Jacqueline Fernandez’s 215 Crore Extortion Case

According to media reports, prime accused Chandrashekhar extorted Rs 215 crore from former Ranbaxy owner’s wife Aditi Singh on the pretext of helping her husband come out of jail. The reports added that Sukesh, after receiving the extorted amount, splurged the same on the actress and her family. 

To interrogate Jacqueline in the extortion case, the ED summoned her several times last year. However, the agency had not added her name in its earlier filed charge sheets. But, the supplementary chargesheet submitted before the Delhi court clearly mentions Jacqueline and Nora Fatehi’s statements in the case.

The reports suggested that Jacqueline received a horse worth Rs 52 lakh and a Persian cat worth Rs 9 lakh from conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

In her statements, the 36-year-old actress had accepted that she received Gucci and Chanel designer bags and clothes and a bracelet of multi-coloured stones from Chandrashekhar.

Future Course Of Jacqueline’s Case

Media reports suggest that a special Delhi court will start the extortion case trial on August 31. As of now, Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh took cognizance of Jacqueline Fernandez extortion case on the basis of the supplementary charge sheet, which the agency filed on August 17.
