Delhi Police will now interrogate Nora Fatehi after Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez for her link with Mahathug Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Delhi Police has asked Nora to appear before the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) on Thursday. This whole case is in the extortion case of Rs 200 crore related to Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
On Wednesday, Delhi Police questioned Jacqueline Fernandez for about eight hours. Apart from Jacqueline, the team also interrogated Pinky Irani, who was allegedly given crores of rupees to introduce Jacqueline to thug Sukesh. During the first round of questioning, officials have found a disparity in the answers of Jacqueline and Pinky Irani. In such a situation, it is believed that both can be interrogated again. Pinky Irani has been asked to appear before Delhi Police on Thursday but Jacqueline has not been summoned for questioning again.
Although Delhi Police has said that Nora Fatehi has no direct relation with Jacqueline but has been called for questioning with Pinky Irani.
Special commissioner Ravindra Yadav said, “Since Pinky Irani is here, we want to interrogate both (Nora and Pinky Irani) tomorrow. There are some things which need to be clarified. There is a dispute between Nora and Jacqueline regarding this matter. There’s no direct connection.” Significantly, on September 2, the police had interrogated Nora Fatehi for about seven hours in the extortion case and recorded her statement.
How did Nora get involved with the case?
According to the police, Nora Fatehi had received many valuable gifts from Sukesh. She was also part of an event in Chennai, which also has links to Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Earlier, the police had said that there are some questions which need to be answered and investigation is being done to find out the people and links involved in the conspiracy.
According to the police, Nora Fatehi had claimed that she had no idea that the event in Chennai she was invited to had a connection with the crime. On August 17, the ED, which is probing the money trail in the extortion case, filed a charge sheet naming actress Jacqueline Fernandes as an accused in the multi-crore money laundering case involving Chandrashekhar. Later, the ED also questioned Nora Fatehi in the same case.
According to the ED, Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez received luxury cars and other expensive gifts from Chandrashekhar.
