New Delhi: Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi on Thursday reached the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in Delhi to record her statement in connection with a money laundering case.
Sources said she was summoned by the agency in a probe related to the conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar case. The investigation is being done in an alleged Rs 200 crore money laundering case.
The ED has issued summons to two actresses Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez to appear before the agency in connection with the case. Fernandez has been asked to appear on Friday for the questioning.
The agency is investigating the possibility of whether the money was invested abroad and it was led by Sukesh Chandrashekar, the accused in a bribery matter including the Election Commission.
They had raided Sukesh and his wife’s house earlier. ED has also said that the Bollywood celebrities were active participants in the entire case.
The case is based on a First Information Report (FIR) by Delhi Economic Offences Wing (EOW). Chandrasekhar is accused of the alleged multi-crore racket.
Fernandez was earlier interrogated as a witness in the Rs. 200 Crore money laundering case. The ED examined the 36-year-old actress for four hours in Delhi in August and recorded her statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Chandrasekhar was arrested in 2017 for allegedly taking money from TTV Dhinakaran to bribe Election Commission officials to get the AIADMK ‘two leaves’ symbol for the Sasikala faction in a by-election to the RK Nagar Assembly seat in Tamil Nadu.
Fatehi is best known for her special dance performances in films like Rocky Handsome, Satyameva Jayate, Stree, Street Dancer 3D and Marjaavaan. She’s participated in reality TV shows such as Bigg Boss 9 and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9. Nora Fatehi also appeared as a guest on the show Dance Deewane in place of Madhuri Dixit for a few episodes.
