Extortion case: ED to question Jacqueline Fernandez today
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday in connection with an ongoing money-laundering investigation against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others.
The summon notice was issued on December 6. According to her spokesperson, she is testifying before the agency as a witness.
On Sunday, the actor was briefly detained at the Mumbai airport, minutes before she was scheduled to fly abroad. Some agency officials reached the airport and disallowed the actor from travelling; Fernandez was then asked to remain in the country as she might be required to join the investigation.
She was reportedly flying to Dubai. After a brief detention, the actor left the airport at around 6pm.
