Jacqueline Fernandez gets court permission to travel abroad

Update : 29 May 2022, 12:22

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been allowed by the court to travel abroad to attend the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards.

Jacqueline can travel to Abu Dhabi between May 31 to June 6.

The actress had moved an application in a Delhi court seeking permission to travel abroad amid the Sukesh Chandrashekhar money laundering case.

The ED earlier attached assets worth Rs 7.27 crore belonging to the actor as part of the probe under anti-money laundering rules.

The law enforcement economic intelligence agency under the Department of Revenue in the Ministry of Finance alleges that the prime accused in the Rs 200-crore money laundering case gave gifts worth Rs 5.71 crore to the Bollywood actress. The money laundering case pertains to the alleged extortion of Rs 200 crore from the family of former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh by Chandrashekhar.

Jacqueline is a Sri Lankan National and is living in India since 2009. She was banned from leaving India by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) as she is being investigated by the agency in the Rs 200-crore extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.

The actress has submitted details about the hotel she will be staying at while she’s in Abu Dhabi. She will also furnish her itinerary to the authorities.

On Saturday, the court suspended the Look Out Circular (LOC) against Jacqueline Fernandez and granted her permission to travel to Abu Dhabi from May 31 to June 6. She has also been asked to submit a deposit to the tune of Rs 50 lakh as surety.

The court order added that the actress shall inform the investigating agency about her return.
