Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been named as accused in the money laundering case against conman Sukesh Chandrasekar. The actress has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate several times in the last year. In April 2022, ED also attached Rs 7.27 crore funds of Jacqueline under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Sukesh is already facing charges of extortion of a huge Rs 200 crore.

Jacqueline's lawyer, advocate Prashant Patil has told that the actress has not got any official copy of the complaint yet. He said, "We have received information about the complaint being filed by the Enforcement Directorate only through media reports. There is no official communication from the Enforcement Directorate or the Hon’ble Court. My client has not received any copy of the complaint filed by the Enforcement Directorate. However, if the media reports are true, then it's unfortunate that my client has been arraigned as an accused in the said case."

The lawyer further added, "She has always cooperated with the investigation agencies and attended all the summons issued to date. She has handed over all the information to the best of her ability to the ED. The agencies have failed to appreciate that she was cheated and conned into this matter. She is a victim of a larger criminal conspiracy. Taking the entire prosecution case to be true for the sake of arguments, even then, no case is made out against Jacqueline under the scheme of Prevention of Money Laundering Act or any other Law in force. This is a case of mala fide prosecution and my client shall take steps as required under law to protect her dignity and liberty."

Following this the actress, who was last seen in Vikrant Rona, shared a cryptic note on her social media, addressing herself as ‘dear me’ in the post. “Dear me, I deserve all good things, I am powerful, I accept myself, it will all be okay. I am strong, I will achieve my goals and dreams, I can do it," the note read.

Jacqueline allegedly got a horse worth 52 lakh rupees and a Persian cat worth 9 lakh rupees as gifts. She also got designer bags and clothes from luxury brands Gucci and Chanel. Reportedly, the actress also met Sukesh while he was in Jail.
