NEW DELHI: Why pick and choose? Court questioned as it referred to the Bollywood actor’s bail plea. A Delhi court on Thursday slammed the ED for not having arrested the actor despite issuing a LOC.
The court is likely to announce to announce its decision tomorrow on the actor’s bail request in connection to a case pertaining Rs 200 crore money laundering involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekar. Special Judge Shailendra Malik, who had earlier granted an interim bail to the Sri Lankan actress reserved the order for Friday.
The court made the comment while hearing the actor’s anticipatory bail application. “Why haven’t you arrested Jacqueline yet despite issuing a look out circular?” the court asked. “Other accused are in jail. Why adopt a pick-and-choose policy?”
The federal agency is investigating the money trail on allegations that Chandrashekhar used the amount gained by cheating and extorting high-profile individuals to buy gifts for Fernandez.
