Jacqueline granted bail

Published

on

Actor Jacqueline Fernandez was on Tuesday granted bail by a Delhi court in the 200 crore Indian Rupee laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekar.

Special Judge Shailendra Malik of Patiala House Court granted bail to Jacqueline Fernandes. Earlier she was granted interim bail.

Ms Fernandez had sought bail on the ground that there was no need for her custody since the investigation is already complete and the charge sheet has been filed.

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.

Ms 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 agency’s earlier charge sheet and a supplementary charge sheet did not mention her as an accused.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate’s main arguments in court against the actor getting bail were that she tried to flee the country, that she didn’t cooperate with the investigators and that she faced serious allegations.

The agency, which investigates financial crimes, had earlier issued an alert – a Lookout Circular (LOC) – in airports to stop the actor from leaving the country.

The actor has been accused of receiving expensive gifts from conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, who extorted crores from celebrities and businessmen.

The Sri Lanka-born Bollywood actor said she received gifts like luxury cars, Gucci and Chanel bags, Gucci gym wear, Louis Vuitton shoes and jewellery. She also said Sukesh Chandrasekhar had arranged private jet trips and hotel stays for her.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who has been in a Delhi jail since 2017, allegedly cheated many, including former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh.

Squid Game actor faces sexual misconduct charges

Squid Game actor O Yeong-su has been charged with sexual misconduct, South Korean judicial officials say.

The 78-year-old is accused of touching a woman inappropriately in 2017, officials said.

Mr O has denied the allegation, local media report.

He became the first South Korean actor to win a Golden Globe award for best supporting actor in a series after his performance in the chart-topping Netflix thriller earlier this year.

The alleged victim first filed a complaint with the police against Mr O in December last year, according to Yonhap news agency. But the case was closed in April without a charge being brought against Mr O.

The prosecution has now reopened the investigation “at the request of the victim”, the agency reports.

Mr O has now been charged without detention, it adds.

Following the charge, Seoul’s culture ministry decided to stop broadcasting a government commercial featuring Mr O, according to local reports cited by AFP news agency.

Squid Game – Netflix’s most popular series of all time – is a thriller series which tells the story of debt-ridden people competing for a huge cash prize in a deadly series of children’s games.

Mr O plays the oldest participant in the survival competition.
