Nora Fatehi interrogated by EOW officials in 200 crore money laundering case
After actor Jacqueline Fernandez, actor Nora Fatehi was summoned by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Nora arrived at the Delhi Police EOW office at Mandir Marg earlier on Thursday.
Earlier on September 2, Nora Fatehi was grilled by the EOW officials for over nine hours and was asked roughly around 50 questions. Special Commissioner of Police, Crime and EOW, Ravindra Yadav, after the interrogation had told that the actor cooperated in the grilling but there were still some questions that needed to be answered.
“We were looking for whatever strings were connected into the case. Including the one who received the gifts, now they were ignorant (about criminal background) or were involved in the actual crime, their investigation is going on…” he said.
The official further stated that Fatehi during the investigation claimed she was not aware of the event held in Chennai, where she was earlier invited and that the event actually had some links connected with Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s crime syndicate.
“It was found that some people worked around him (Sukesh Chandrashekhar) and he used to first contact actresses. When they were friendlier, he tried to entice them with expensive gifts. It seems some people realised but continued out of greed,” he added.
Police officials said that questioning so far has surfaced that Nora and Jacqueline Fernandez, were both unaware of each other receiving gifts.
In September-October 2021, the enforcement agency recorded statements of Fatehi where she acknowledged having received gifts from the alleged conman and his actor wife Leena.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is currently lodged in a Delhi jail and faces over 10 criminal cases registered against him, has been accused of running an extortion racket worth Rs 200 crore.
