Jacqueline Fernandez is attending a bail plea hearing in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving the conman Sukesh Chandrashekar at Delhi’s Patiala House Court.

According to the ED, Fernandez never cooperated with the probe and only disclosed her relationship with Chandrashekar when confronted with evidence. She said she got to know about Sukesh’s criminal antecedents within 10 days of her introduction to him in 2021. She also said that the conman arranged private jet trips and hotel stays for her on different occasions.
