Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been going through a rough patch on a personal front ever since she got involved in Rs. 200 crore extortion case. In August this year, ED named Fernandez as an accused in the extortion case after the department found the actress to be the “beneficiary of the proceeds of the extorted money." Now as per the latest reports, Jacqueline has requested Delhi Police to postpone her questioning in an extortion case on September 12.
The Kick actress sent mail to Delhi Police saying she won’t able to appear for questioning due to her prior work commitments. And, her request has been granted and now fresh summons for a later date will be issued to the actress. Jacqueline was supposed to appear at the economic offences wing (EOW) office at Mandir Marg around 11 as part of the investigation in the Rs 200 crore extortion case connected with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
Confirming the same to ANI, A senior police officer revealed that Jacqueline had sent an email to Delhi Police informing the same. The officer added, “Now, we will issue a fresh summon to Jacqueline to join the investigation in the case.

Jacqueline is said to be in a relationship with Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is currently locked in Delhi jail. The actress had received many expensive gifts worth in crores, including watches, branded bags, and cars from the conman.
In its charge sheet, ED claimed that “the lure of money ensured that the criminal history of the person Jacqueline was engaging with did not matter.” The department also alleged that she “committed the offence of money laundering as defined under section 3 of PMLA for knowingly using and possessing the proceeds of crime.”
