Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate has summoned actress Nora Fatehi in connection with a 200 crore money-laundering case involving Sukesh Chandrashekhar and Leena Paul who have been accused of duping the family of Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh.
The FIR was filed by the Delhi Police's economic offences wing which has claimed that Chandrashekhar is the mastermind behind the case which involves a conspiracy, cheating and extortion. Fatehi is being questioned as she allegedly has connections to both the accused.
Another Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandes was also questioned in association with the case. Police say that Chandrashekhar had been in regular contact with the actress through calls and messages. Fernandes did not respond to the second summons.
In August the central agency said it had seized a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, ₹ 82.5 lakh in cash, and over a dozen luxury cars in connection with the case against him. Shivinder and his brother Malvinder Singh are both lodged in Tihar jail following their arrest in the Ranbaxy fraud case in which they are accused of breach of trust, conspiracy, and cheating. Chandrashekhar had approached the wives of both men while posing as an important government official in the ruling BJP party who demanded bribes to get their husbands out of jail, the FIR reads.
