New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday granted bail to actor Jacqueline Fernandez in a Rs 200 cr money laundering case linked to alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. The bail was granted to Fernandez after furnishing a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and one surety in the like amount.

Jacqueline reached Delhi’s Patiala House Court earlier in the day after her interim bail ended on Tuesday. The court had on August 31 accepted the supplementary charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate and asked Ms Fernandez to appear before the court.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) claimed that the Bollywood actor was a flight risk as she is not short of money. Responding to ED’s submission, the court asked the probe agency why the actor was not arrested so far.

Fernandez, who was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate several times in connection with the investigation, has been named as an accused for the first time in the supplementary charge sheet.

The advocate appearing for Jacqueline had contended that there was no need for the actor’s custody as the investigation is already complete and the chargesheet has been filed.
