Months has been passed when the Srilankan beauty’s name linked with the conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar who has been accused in a 200 crore money laundering case and currently in prison. Jacqueline Fernandez had previously filed a plea to travel abroad for the IIFA awards going to be held in Dubai but as the event got postponed to June she filed a plea to withdraw it.
Jacqueline Fernandez withdrew her application from the court of Additional Sessions, Judge Praveen Singh.
She sought a 15-days exemption to attend IIFA awards along with the permission to travel to France and Nepal due to professional commitments.
According to the sources, she has also asked the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for her Srilankan Passport but fearing that she would never come back to India the authority has denied it. ED wants the actress to contribute to the ongoing money laundering case against her.
Chandrashekhar, his wife, and six others were previously charged under the sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
It has been alleged that the actress has taken numerous gifts from Chandrashekhar like Persian Cats and Horse, Fixed Deposit, etc
Earlier this year his lawyer released a note where he is confessing that he was in a relationship with the actress and the gifts were part of our friendship
“As I have mentioned before, I and Jacqueline were in a relationship, seeing each other, and the relationship was not based on any kind of monetary benefits like the way it’s projected, commented, and trolled in a bad light (sic),” he wrote.
