Jacqueline Fernandez claims her fixed deposits are from ‘own legitimate income’, invested before ‘Sukesh Chandrasekhar even existed’ | Hindi Movie News

Jacqueline Fernandez has responded to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act officials, who have attached several of her fixed deposits. Her investment was attached by the authority after Jacqueline’s name was linked to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar in a 200 crore money laundering case. The actress has said that her FD has nothing to do with her and it was made even before the ‘existence’ of Thugs.

The actress, in her reply to the adjudicating officers of PMLA, said that the fixed deposits attached under the impugned order have nothing to do with any offense and neither the fixed deposits are created by using the alleged proceeds of the offence. Jacqueline Fernandez said the deposits were “from her legitimate sources of income and knowing long before time that the prime accused Chandrashekhar was present in this world as well.”

Last week, the ED had filed a supplementary charge sheet, in which they named Jacqueline as an accused. Her lawyer Prashant Patil had told ETimes that the actress was a victim in the case. “He has always cooperated with the investigating agencies and participated in all the summons issued so far. He has handed over all the information to the ED to the best of his ability. The agencies have failed to understand that he was cheated and involved in this case. He is the victim of a major criminal conspiracy. Considering the entire case of the prosecution to be true on the basis of the arguments, no case is made out against Jacqueline under the scheme of Prevention of Money Laundering Act or any other applicable law. This is a case of malicious prosecution and my client will take necessary steps under the law to protect her dignity and liberty,” Prashant Patil had said.
