Jacqueline Fernandez Gives Statement Before Magistrate Over Conman Link

India: Jacqueline Fernandez today recorded her statement before a magistrate on her alleged link with Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who is accused of conning people of Rs 200 crore.

During her questioning in the case registered by the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police, Ms Fernandez had said she would share details if her statement is taken in front of a magistrate under Section 164 in The Code Of Criminal Procedure (CrPC). That could make it admissible evidence since no overt coercion is involved. She gave her statement, thus, at the Patiala House district court.

Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who is jailed in Delhi, allegedly cheated many high-profile people by posing as a government officer, among other impersonations.

Probe agencies, such as the Enforcement Directorate that looks into money laundering, has alleged that Jacqueline Fernandez tried to leave India while she was being investigated in the extortion case.

She has denied the allegations, and said that during her acquaintance with Sukesh Chandrasekhar, she did not know of his crimes.
