Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned actor Jacqueline Fernandez on Monday in connection with a money laundering case that involved jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, as per reports, Hindustan Times reported.

The actor has previously been investigated in the case, as well. As per reports, Jacqueline knew Sukesh well and by some accounts, was in a relationship with him. However, the actor has maintained silence about the same.

On Monday, Jacqueline appeared at the ED headquarters, following the summons of a federal agency to record her statement in the case. In April, the agency had attached assets worth ₹7.27 crore of the actor in the case registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002.

ED's current case is based on an FIR filed by the Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing (EOW) against the alleged conman, who was contacting people by spoofing calls to dupe them. The numbers reflecting on their phones seemed to be from government officers, and he claimed to be a government officer offering to help people for a price. Both Sukesh and his wife, actor Leena Maria Paul, were arrested by the Delhi Police in September 2021 for their alleged role in a duping case.
