Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been asked by the Enforcement Directorate to appear before investigators in Delhi on December 8, Wednesday. The summons were issued in conjunction with an extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar worth Rs 200 crore.

Chandrashekhar was accused of giving the actor various expensive presents, including Persian cats and a horse, according to the charging document. He is suspected of defrauding a number of people, including Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh.

In this instance, the ED has also questioned Bollywood actress and dancer Nora Fatehi. Chandrashekhar was reportedly running an extortion ring using phone spoofing technology while imprisoned in Delhi’s Rohini jail, according to the investigation. Along with the  couple two co-accused, Pradeep Ramnani and Deepak Ramnani have also been detained.
