Jacqueline Fernandez gets bail in Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s Rs 200 crore money laundering case | Hindi Movie News

Delhi’s Patiala House Court pronounced an order in Jacqueline Fernandez‘s Rs 200 crore extortion case involving Sukesh Chandrasekhar. The actress was granted bail on furnishing of a personal bond of Rs 2 lakh and one surety in the like amount.

Earlier, the court had extended the interim bail of Jacqueline till November 15, stating that it will pronounce the order on her regular bail plea on the same date. The actress had landed in trouble after her name surfaced during the investigation in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. The actress had received several expensive gifts from him. The Enforcement Directorate had named Jacqueline as an accused in their chargesheet, stating that she was a beneficiary of the extorted money.

Jacqueline had filed a bail plea in the matter, which was opposed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), that reportedly alleged that Jacqueline could flee the country to escape the investigation. “We have not seen Rs 50 lakh in cash in our entire life but Jacqueline frittered away Rs 7.14 crore for fun. She has tried every trick in the book to try and escape because she has enough money,” the ED had said while opposing Jacqueline’s bail.

Jacqueline’s lawyer had told ETimes that the actress is a victim in the case. Prashant Patil had told ETimes, “She has always cooperated with the investigation agencies and attended all the summons issued till 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 malafide prosecution and my client shall take steps as required under law to protect her dignity and liberty.”
