Jacqueline Fernandez claimed that ED had treated her differently from other individuals implicated in the money laundering case.
Mumbai: Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has responded to the adjudicating authorities’ order of provisional attachment of her property dated April 28. She claimed in her response that the central agency had treated her differently from other individuals implicated in the money laundering case against Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
The adjudicating authority in the case is the deputy director of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which has been largely looking into the case filed against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. By way of the order Fernandez’s fixed deposits in a bank totaling Rs 7,12,24,767 were frozen.
The authorities’ justification was that she is a foreigner “Fernandez may flee the country. She is from Sri Lanka. This way, the proceeds of crime (POC) won’t be accessible for confiscation when the trial is over, due to her leaving the country’s jurisdiction on account of usage and passage of time. “
To the best of her ability, she gave the ED all the facts. The agencies have failed to appreciate her for giving full support and providing facts. She was cheated and conned into this matter. She is a victim of Chandrasekhar, the principal accuser, and his method of operation.
The actress’s reply further added that she is being treated differently by the ED, while she stands on the same footing as other victims of Sukesh Chandrashekharand, like actor Norah Fatehi.
Sources said that Jacqueline was aware that Sukesh Chandrashekhar was an extortionist and she was a beneficiary of the proceeds of the extortion.
