Pinky Irani, an associate of Jacqueline Fernandez has also been summoned to join the investigation
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) is likely to grill Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez on Wednesday in connection with the Rs.200 crore extortion cheating case involving multimillionaire conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. The conman is already under the investigation of EOW of the Delhi Police.
There are possibilities that the questioning can go on for two or three days. The questions that will be asked to Irani and Fernandez have been prepared by the top brass officials to nail the lies of Chandrashekhar.
Earlier in the first week of September, the EOW officials had recorded the testimony of another Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi in the matter.
The EOW had earlier postponed her questioning on her request and had fixed the matter for today. Pinky Irani, an associate of Fernandez has also been summoned to join the investigation and both are likely to be grilled together.
Sources in the unit said that they have prepared a long list of questionnaires that will be asked to the actress.
The source said, “We will ask her about her relationship with Chandrashekar and the gifts, money which she received from the conman. We might confront Irani and Fernandez.”
Chandrashekhar was arrested for allegedly cheating and extorting money from some high-profile people, including former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh. Many Bollywood actors and models have been questioned by the Enforcement Directorate for their alleged links to Chandrashekhar.
In April last year he was arrested in another money laundering case linked to the 2017 Election Commission bribery case, which allegedly involved a former AIADMK leader, among others.
