Jacqueline Fernandez’s regular bail request was scheduled to be heard in court. The actor was given temporary bail in the extortion case on the hearing’s last day.
The interim protection given to actor Jacqueline Fernandez by the Patiala House Court in Delhi on Saturday was extended until November 10 in connection with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) case concerning the 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekar and others.
On November 10, Fernandez arrived at Delhi’s Patiala House Court in connection to the case. The court heard arguments on the bail petition moved by her.
The Delhi court reserved an order on the bail for tomorrow. Earlier, she was granted interim bail in the matter and the ED opposed the bail saying she tried to flee the country.
Jacqueline Fernandez Interim Bail Extended By Delhi Court:
The court further ordered the ED to give all parties access to the charge sheet and other required documentation. The actor’s regular bail request was to be heard in court. She received conditional bail in the case on the last day of the hearing. For the hearing, Fernandez and her attorney, Prashant Patil, were both present in court. The interim bail was granted following the court’s directive for the ED to submit a response to the actor’s bail application.
On August 17, Fernandez was named as an accused in a supplemental charge sheet submitted to a Delhi court by the investigating agency in the case against Chandrashekar. According to ED’s earlier charge sheet, Fernandez and another star, Nora Fatehi, underwent an investigation and testified that the accused gave them top-model BMW cars as the most expensive gifts. According to the ED charge sheet, Jacqueline Fernandez’s statements throughout the inquiry were recorded on August 30 and October 10, 2021.
The actor claimed to have received presents, including two Gucci gym suits and three costly bags from Chanel and Gucci, a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes, two sets of diamond stud earrings, two Hermes bracelets, and a bracelet made of a rainbow of coloured stones. Additionally, she was given a Mini Cooper, which she returned.
Fernandez, meanwhile, denied having a “unity of design with Sukesh” and claimed that she was herself a victim of the circumstances and criminal acts committed by the conman and his associates. Despite never denying receiving presents, the plea said that she was unaware that they were the proceeds of crime at any given time “on account of the deceitful and duplicitous conduct of Chandrashekar, due to which she has suffered, and continues to suffer, tremendous hardship.”
