Money Laundering Case: Bollywood Actress Jacqueline Fernandez Grilled by ED

New Delhi: Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been picked up by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and has been taken for questioning in connection with a money laundering case.

The actress is still being grilled by the ED. It is underway for the last five hours. The questioning of the Bollywood actress is taking place at the Enforcement Directorate’s Delhi office.

In July, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband was arrested by the police for alleged production and distribution of porn content.

Recently, Raj Kundra was granted interim protection from arrest till August 25 by the Bombay High Court. When the matter came up for hearing, his lawyer Prashant Patil argued that the other co-accused in the case is already out on bail and the offences against Kundra attract a punishment of lesser than seven years, and hence deserved protection from arrest.

Opposing the plea, Additional Public Prosecutor Prajakta Shinde said that the role of the accused (Kundra) was different from the other co-accused and sought more time for instructions on the merits of the case.

While granting time, Justice S.K. Shinde allowed an interim order preventing Kundra’s arrest till August 25, when the next hearing is scheduled.

Earlier, Raj Kundra had sought anticipatory bail in the FIR lodged by the Mumbai Police Cyber Crime Cell in connection with the alleged porn racket case, claiming he was falsely implicated.
