Jacqueline Fernandez skips Enforcement Directorate summons, Norah Fatehi obliges

Date:

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez to appear before the agency and record her statement on Saturday after she failed to appear in court on Friday in connection with a money laundering case.

In this case, the 36-year-old actor appeared before the federal agency in August and gave her statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

According to the Hindustan Times, she skipped her new summons for Friday and has been summoned to appear before the case’s investigating officer on Saturday. The agency is said to want to confront Chandrashekhar and his actress wife, Leena Maria Paul.

Meanwhile, in this case, actor and dancer Norah Fatehi recorded her statement with the ED on Thursday.

“Nora Fatehi has been the victim in this case, and as a witness, she is cooperating with and assisting the officers in the investigation,” her representative said. The spokesperson insisted that Fatehi had been involved in “no money laundering activity” and urged the media to “refrain from slandering her name.”

“She does not know or have any personal connection with the accused and has been called by the ED to strictly assist with the investigation,” a spokesperson for the ED was quoted as saying by HT.

The ED arrested Chandrashekhar and Paul while they were already in a local jail after being taken into custody by the Delhi Police on charges of defrauding several people, including former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh.

The ED raided some of Chandrashekhar’s properties in August, seizing a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, Rs 82.5 lakh in cash, and a slew of luxury cars. It claimed in a statement that Chandrashekhar is a “known conman” who is being investigated by the Delhi Police for alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating, and extortion worth Rs 200 crore.
