Delhi’s Patiala House Court pronounced an order in Bollywood actress 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 same 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 charge sheet, 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), which 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.
