After the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had included Bollywood star Jacqueline Fernandez in a chargesheet filed in connection with a 200 crore money laundering case, a Delhi court issued summons against her on Wednesday in an extortion case.

After taking into account the additional chargesheet that the ED submitted on August 17, Special Judge Parveen Singh summoned the actor. On September 26, Fernandez will now appear in court.

In a case involving Sukesh Chandrashekar, it is claimed that 200 crore was laundered. For the first time in the case, Fernandez was recently included as an accused in the chargesheet.

The ED claims that 16 expensive automobiles belonged to co-accused Leena Paulose or others were discovered after searches at locations connected to Chandrasekhar and his colleagues.

Eight people were charged in the 200 billion rupee money laundering case, including Chandrasekhar, Leena Maria Paul, Deepak Ramnani, Pradeep Ramnani, Kamlesh Kothari, Avtar Singh Kochhar, and two others.

Fernandez had previously requested the release of her passport in a document she had previously presented before the same judge, claiming that she had been residing in India since 2009 and was well-known in the Indian film community.

It was noted that although her passport had been taken without cause, the investigative agency had not listed her as an accused party in the case.

Fernandez has always cooperated with the ED in the inquiry, according to the application. She was represented by attorneys Prashant Patil, Aman Nandrajog, and Shakti Pandey.
