The actress was probed by the Delhi Police EOW (Economic Offences Wing) on Friday, in connection with jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar's money laundering case. However, the details of this probe are yet awaited.
As per ETimes report, Nora’s statement was recorded under section 50 of the PMLA, 2002 in September and October 2021. She had mentioned receiving a booking for a charity event and during the same, she was gifted a Gucci Bag and an iPhone by Leena Paulose, wife of Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
Recently, Nora was spotted stepping out for a meeting in the city but her latest outing did not go down well with some netizens who brutally troll the actress for her walk. In fact, some harsh and nasty trolls also mocked Fatehi for allegedly using the car gifted by conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

Meanwhile, Jacqueline on the other hand has been making it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Several reports suggest that Sukesh Chandrasekhar was contacting the actress from inside the Tihar jail.
In fact, Fernandez claimed that she was not aware of Sukesh calling and texting her from the jail.
Recently, Jacqueline Fernandez, in a plea before the Appellate Authority of PMLA, stated that it was surprising that other celebrities like Norah Fatehi, who was also conned by main accused Sukesh Chandrashekhar in the ₹200 crore extortion case, was made a witness in the case whereas she is being named as an accused, reported ETimes.
As per the supplementary charge sheet filed by the ED alleged, "The investigation conducted so far has revealed that the accused, Jacqueline Fernandez, is knowingly directly and indirectly involved in the process and activity connected with the proceeds of crime and acquired, possessed and used part proceeds of crime by way of receiving valuable gifts and huge amounts for herself and her family members in India and abroad and thereby committed an offence of money laundering under section 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.” ALSO READ | Jacqueline Fernandez And Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar Summoned By ED; The Latter Denies Of Giving Expensive Gifts To Actress
