Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez was on Wednesday questioned by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) for over eight hours in connection with the case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar who is lodged at a Delhi jail in a multi-crore money-laundering case, PTI reported.

Her interrogation began at 11:30 AM and she left the EOW’s Mandir Marg office at 8 PM. She appeared at the EOW after three summons. The actor had been summoned twice—on August 29 and September 12— but did not show up on both dates.

Actor Nora Fatehi and Pinky Irani, who allegedly introduced Fernandez to Chandrashekhar, have been summoned for questioning on Thursday.

Irani had accompanied Fernandez on Wednesday.

Special Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said Fernandez was grilled about her alleged role in the Chandrashekhar case, and she was interrogated about the gifts she took from him, among other issues.

Fernandez and Irani were seated together and the actor cooperated during the questioning, Yadav said, adding that the actor will be called again for questioning at a later date.

Meanwhile, although EOW had earlier quizzed Nora Fatehi on September 3, she will be interrogated again on Thursday as there were questions that she had not answered.

However, the officer said that there were no direct links between the two actors.
