The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has now attached assets worth Rs 7.27 crore of Actress Jacqueline Fernandez. The attached assets include fixed deposit worth Rs 7.12 crore under Jacqueline Fernandez.
The ED has estimated that Sukesh had given gifts worth Rs 5.71 crore to Jacqueline using the extorted money. He had also given funds close to US dollar 173,000 and around 27,000 Australian dollar to close family members of Jacqueline.
Sukesh is currently involved in a five-year-old cheating case involving politician TTV Dhinakaran. He was placed under arrest by the ED on April 4 in relation to the case.
Last year, Sukesh was arrested by the ED for extorting Rs 215 crore from a Delhi businessmanâ€™s wife by impersonating officials of the Home Ministry and Law Ministry. In December 2021, Jacqueline appeared before the ED after she was summoned for questioning in the investigation against Sukesh.
Earlier, Jacqueline had told ED officials that she was in touch with Sukesh Chandrasekhar since 2017 and that the conman had told her that he belonged to late Jayalalithaaâ€™s family.
The actress had also mentioned that her sister took a loan of $1,50,000 from Chandrasekhar and accepted that the conman had transferred around Rs 15 lakh to her brother, who lives in Australia.
