According to the sources, the chargesheet which will be filed by the EOW branch of the Delhi Police includes 164 statements of actresses-- Jacqueline Fernandes, Nora Fatehi, and Chahat Khanna that it recorded during the course of the investigation. The EOW will file its chargesheet in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case in the court of Additional sessions Judge Shailendra Malik of the Patiala House Court, Delhi.

Rs 200 crore money laundering case

The Rs 200 core money laundering case involves Sukesh Chandrashekhar, the prime accused who has been charged with duping the wife of former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh, Aditi Singh, impersonating a high dignitary while he was lodged in a Delhi jail.

The Delhi Police had alleged that Sukesh and his wife Leena Paulose and others used Hawala routes and created shell companies to park the money earned as proceeds of crime. During the investigation, Sukesh revealed that Jacqueline Fernandez received gifts worth crores from him. According to the ED's chargesheet filed earlier in the case, Fernandez was aware of Sukesh's involvement in criminal cases, yet indulged in financial transactions with him.
