Mumbai, October 14
: Hours after being summoned by the Enforcement Directorate, Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi reached the ED office in a Rs. 200-crore money laundering case. This case relates to an FIR filed by the Delhi Police in connection with the extortion racket, allegedly perpetrated by Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others. Fatehi appeared before the investigating officer of this case at the agency office.
According to reports, her statement is being recorded under provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act / PMLA in connection with the money laundering case filed against Chandrashekar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul.
The agency had also questioned actor Jacqueline Fernandes in this case. She is expected to depose again before the agency on Thursday.
Both the actors are understood to be helping the agency in taking the probe forward as they themselves had been allegedly conned in the racket run by Chandrashekhar and his wife.
The two were recently arrested by the ED while being already lodged in jail after they were arrested by the Delhi Police on charges of cheating some people including some high-profile individual. These included former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh's wife Aditi Singh.
