Jacqueline Fernandez Money Laundering case: In a major development in Rs 200 crore money laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate has filed a chargesheet in which it stated that Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez 'consciously chose to overlook Sukesh Chandrashekhar's criminal record and continued to indulge in financial transactions with him.'
The chargesheet, filed in the money laundering case, also stated that not only Jacqueline Fernandez but also her family members and friends were given benefits from the relationship financially.
In the meanwhile, the ED also stated that Jacqueline Fernandez has consistently shifted her stance regarding the gifts received by her and her relatives.
The chargesheet further stated that the investigation has revealed that Jacqueline was directly or indirectly involved in the proceeds of the crime. It also stated that she acquired, possessed, and used part proceeds of crime - valuable gifts for herself and her relatives in India and abroad.
ED was of opinion that she has thereby committed an offence of money laundering under section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, which is punishable under section 4 of PMLA, 2002.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Trial Court issued a summon to the Bollywood actor to appear before it physically on September 26 in Enforcement Directorate (ED) case related to Rs 200 crore money laundering scam.
