Nora Vs Jacqueline Case

Nora Vs Jacqueline: Court To Hear Defamation Case On Mar 25

The Patiala House court in New Delhi on Monday listed the hearing on a defamation complaint filed by Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi for March 25.

Nora recently filed a defamation suit against fellow Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez and various media organizations in a Delhi court.

Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez both were recently questioned by different investigation agencies in the Rs 200 crore extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar and others.

The matter was listed before Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Kapil Gupta on Saturday, but the matter could not be taken up as the concerned magistrate was on official training.

On December 19, 2022, the court noted that counsel for the complainant sought some time to file a list of witnesses. The complainant is at liberty to file appropriate documents on or before the next date of hearing.

Nora through complaint claimed that Jacqueline Fernandez’s statement has caused harm to her reputation and for malicious reasons.

Nora Fatehi in criminal defamation case stated that she is aggrieved of defamatory remarks made by Jacqueline Fernandez initially which was further carried forward and circulated by the other accused persons (media organizations), all of whom were acting in connivance with each other, and a conspiracy by Jacqueline Fernandez to ensure the financial, social, and personal

the downfall of the complainant (Fatehi) was hatched and enacted by the said actions.

Fatehi in the defamation case alleged that Jacqueline also maliciously attempted to absolve herself from her actions in other criminal proceedings which are absolutely unrelated to the Complainant.

It has started to become evident that the aforementioned rivals being unable to compete with the Complainant fairly in the industry have started to try and tarnish her reputation which would cause her loss of work and hence would open up greener pastures for her rivals in the industry.

It is also pertinent to submit here that the reputation of any person in the film industry is an asset and any dent in the same would cause huge and irreparable damage to their career, stated Nora Fatehi.

Nora through her advocates Vikram Singh Chauhan, Umair Ahmed, and Tanisha stated that Jacqueline made a “false statement” which was “unnecessary and unwarranted”. Jacqueline “unnecessarily dragged the complainant” and “defamed her as she is in the same industry and is fully aware that the business of any artist and their career is solely based on their reputation.

Delhi Police’s EOW had registered an FIR against Chandrasekhar for allegedly duping the spouses of former promoters of Ranbaxy, Shivinder Singh, and Malvinder Singh, of Rs 200 crores besides ongoing investigations against him in several cases across the country.

According to the Prosecution, the EOW extended its investigation into the case related to extortion of over Rs 200 crore, by Rohini jail inmate Sukesh Chandrasekar for allegedly duping wives of former Religare promoters Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, who are currently in Tihar jail.

Investigations revealed that the accused Sukesh Chandrasekar had duped Shivinder’s wife Aditi Singh and Malvinder’s wife Japna Singh worth over several crores of rupees. The women claimed that they have paid crores of rupees to the conman to secure bail for their husbands and ensure their safety, posing as an officer from the Union Law Ministry.

Chandrasekhar and his associates allegedly took money from Aditi after posing as government officials and promising to get bail for her husband. As per reports, Chandrasekhar persuaded Aditi to transfer money by impersonating a central government official over a spoof call while he was lodged in Rohini jail and promised to manage bail for her husband.

Both Chandrasekhar and his actor wife Leena Maria Paul were arrested by the Delhi Police in September last year for their alleged role in the duping case. (ANI)

Nora Vs Jacqueline Case

Jacqueline Remained In Touch With Sukesh, Nora Cut Ties: Cops

The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police on Thursday questioned actor Nora Fatehi in connection with her relations and the gifts which she got from conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar who is in Tihar jail in a case of extortion of Rs 200 crore.

Special commissioner of police, EOW, Ravinder Yadav said that her brother-in-law had got a BMW from Chandrashekhar in 2021.

On Wednesday, EOW had also grilled Bollywood diva Jacqueline Fernandez for eight hours at its office in connection with the case. But both the actors have no direct connection with this case.

Special Commissioner of Police (EOW) Ravindra Yadav told ANI that Sukesh would try to influence the Bollywood actresses as he was having a huge wealth of properties which he acquired through extortion.

Delhi Police sleuths had called three persons today for questioning: Nora Fatehi, her brother-in-law Mehboob aka Bobby Khan, and Pinky Irani.

Irani is a person who approached Fatehi for gifts on the direction of Chandrashekhar. She was called to participate in an event at the studio in Chennai owned by Chandrashekar’s wife Lena Maria, last year.

In the event, Fatehi was offered a BMW car and a participation fee in the event. Fatehi, during questioning, said that she refused to take that gift, however, she told that they should give it to her brother-in-law Mehboob alias Bobby.

Mehboob, who is a native of Morocco, mostly lives in Mumbai and works in the Bollywood industry. He had also directed the movie “Leela ek Paheli” in which Sunny Leone played a lead role.

Mehboob recognized Pinky Irani today during the questioning.

Sources said Pinky Irani’s code word was ‘Angel’. She introduced herself to Nora with the code name Angel. EOW officers said that she would often ignore Chandrashekar as he repeatedly tried to approach her through Irani.

“Today, we called Fatehi, Irani, and Mehboob and confronted each other. We also recorded their statements separately,” said an officer.

Meanwhile, EOW has also recovered a super bike, Ducati, costing around Rs 8 lakh from Prashant who is the manager of Fernandez. This bike was gifted by Chandrashekhar to Prashant.

According to sources, Jacqueline Fernandez was so convinced and influenced by Chandrashekhar that she would call him the “man of her dreams” and was thinking of marrying him.

Nora never met Chandrashekhar. She had talked with him through Whatsapp, twice, the source said.

While speaking to ANI, Ravinder Yadav said, “There is more trouble for Jacqueline Fernandez as she did not cut ties with Sukesh even after knowing his criminal antecedents. But Nora did disconnect herself once she suspected that something is fishy.”

In today’s questioning contradictions were cleared that BMW was kept by brother-in-law of Nora as Nora refused to receive the gift

Nora is also likely to turn witness in the Delhi police case but the investigation is still on. (ANI)

Jacqueline Appears Before Economic Offences Wing Of the Delhi Police

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez on Wednesday appeared before the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

Jacqueline arrived at the Delhi Police EOW office at Mandir Marg earlier today.
A senior police officer told ANI that EOW has prepared a list of questions to be answered by Jacqueline. The questions were based on her relationship with Sukesh and the gifts she got from him. She will also be asked how many times she had met or contacted Sukesh over the phone during that period, the officer added.

Meanwhile, Pinky Irani, who had apparently introduced Jacqueline Fernandez to Sukesh Chandrashekhar, also arrived at the office of the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police on Wednesday in connection with the money laundering case.

She has been summoned by EOW to join the investigation.

Irani has apparently helped Sukesh to contact Jacqueline Fernandez as she knew both of them. According to sources, Pinky and Jacqueline might be confronted during questioning to get more clarity in the case. Jacqueline has been communicated that her investigation might get stretched for a couple of days or back to back and hence told to plan her stay in Delhi accordingly.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) named Jacqueline in their chargesheet in the money laundering case that involves Sukesh.

The probe agency chargesheet stated that actor Jacqueline knew about Sukesh’s involvement in criminal cases but she chose to overlook his criminal past and got involved in financial transactions with him.

“The set of questions prepared for Jacqueline is different from that were asked to Nora Fatehi, who was earlier called for questioning into the case,” said another officer.

They have to also find out if both the actresses involved in the case were aware of each other receiving gifts, the officer added.

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.

ED had registered a money laundering case in the alleged scam over the FIR registered by the Delhi Police. The agency had earlier stated that Fernandez’s statements were recorded on August 30 and October 20, 2021, where she admitted to having received gifts from Chandrashekar.

It also said that Fernandez had used proceeds of crime and bought valuable gifts for herself and her family members in India as well as abroad which amounts to an offence of money laundering under section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar, a native of Bengaluru in Karnataka, is currently lodged in a Delhi jail and faces over 10 criminal cases registered against him.

Chandrashekhar has been accused of extorting Rs 200 crore when he was lodged in Rohini jail, from Aditi Singh, the wife of jailed former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh, while posing as an official from the union law ministry and the PMO, on the pretext of getting her husband out on bail. (ANI)
