In a recent development, Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been granted permission by a Delhi court to travel overseas for the prestigious IIFA Awards and a film shoot, despite being implicated in a money laundering case alongside alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. The court approval was granted by Special Judge Shailendra Malik, allowing Fernandez to travel from May 25 to June 12.
According to reports, Jacqueline Fernandez sought permission to attend the IIFA Awards in Abu Dhabi from May 25 to May 27, followed by a film shoot in Milan, Italy from May 28 to June 12. Special Judge Shailendra Malik considered her request and approved the travel, marking a significant development in the ongoing legal proceedings.
Previously, on November 15, the court had granted Jacqueline pre-arrest bail, and on September 26, temporary protection from arrest was provided. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) recently filed an additional charge sheet naming the actress as an accused in the money laundering case. The ED had seized assets and fixed deposits worth Rs. 7.2 crore, which they classified as “proceeds” of the alleged crime received by Jacqueline.
The case involves the alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who is the primary suspect in a Rs. 200 crore money laundering investigation by the Enforcement Directorate. Both Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi, prominent Bollywood figures, have provided testimonies as witnesses in the case.
Earlier statements made by Sukesh Chandrasekhar to the media revealed his admission of being in a relationship with Jacqueline Fernandez, claiming they were serious about each other. He also made allegations against Nora Fatehi, describing her as “jealous” and asserting that she had attempted to contact him but was ignored due to his relationship with the Murder 2 actress.
The ongoing legal proceedings and the involvement of high-profile Bollywood personalities have attracted significant attention. With Jacqueline Fernandez now granted permission to travel overseas, the case takes an intriguing turn, leaving fans and the industry curious about its future outcomes.
