Jacqueline Fernandezs Interim Bail in Money Laundering Case Extended By Delhi Court

Sentinel Digital Desk

NEW DELHI: On Friday, Delhi's Patiala House Court postponed making a decision on a reserved matter involving Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandes' request for bail in a Rs 200 crore suspected money laundering case.

However, the temporary bail set forth for Jacqueline has been extended by the court till Tuesday, Nov 15. Another suspect, in this case, is conman Sukesh Chandrashekar.

On Thursday, the court had heard the arguments but had reserved the order.

Jacqueline Fernandes' request for bail was heard on Friday, but special judge Shailendra Malik postponed making a decision. Tuesday at 4 PM is when the Court will probably issue the order.

The agency's decision not to make an arrest during the inquiry was questioned by the Court as well. The agency apprehended some accused people, according to the court, but not all of them. Why does this pick-and-choose policy exist?

Siddharth Agarwal, a senior attorney, and Prashant Patil, Jacqueline's attorney, claimed that the actress cooperated with the investigation and that her statement was recorded five times.

Additionally, they claimed that a supplementary charge sheet had been filed and that she was a lady who had not been detained during the course of the investigation. The court should not change this statement.

She was also said to have been ignorant of the fact that the presents she received came from criminal activity revenues. She is qualified for bail given the situation.

On the other side, the ED attorney claimed that she had previously made attempts to leave the country. She didn't assist with the investigation, the attorney said.

She is also capable of influencing the inquiry and persuading witnesses, in addition to being financially sound.

According to ED, she had, utilized, and relished the proceeds of crime. The accused is responsible for it. The investigation is ongoing; further issues could arise.

She is a foreign national with roots in Sri Lanka, according to ED's attorney. Her parents are located in Bahrain, her brother is in Australia, and her sister is abroad. If her bail is raised, she might escape.

Because she did not participate in the inquiry, she cannot be given bail based only on the fact that the accused is a woman. ED's attorney said that given these facts, she might not be given bail. She had already received temporary bail from the trial court in this case.
