New Delhi: Nora Fatehi was questioned by the Economic Offences Wing(EOW) of Delhi Police on Friday. Reportedly, the actress-dancer was questioned for around seven hours at their office in Delhi’s Mandir Marg. The questioning happened in connection with the Rs. 200 crores extortion case involving Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
The Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing has questioned Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi in connection with an extortion case linked to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, officials told PTI on Saturday.
Fatehi was summoned last week. She was questioned at the Mandir Marg office of the EOW for hours on Friday and her statement was recorded, they said.
Chandrashekar, who is currently lodged in jail, is accused of cheating various people, including some high-profile individuals such as former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh’s wife Aditi Singh.
Fatehi was earlier questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in this case.
Ravindra Singh Yadav, Special CP (Crime and EoW), told The Indian Express that four to five people including Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez have been summoned for the inquiry.
“Nora Fatehi was called yesterday in connection with a case of Sukesh and she was questioned for around 7 hours. During questioning, she has cooperated, but still there are a few unanswered questions. She told the police she was not aware that the event where she was invited to in Chennai had links to this crime syndicate… But everything will have to be seen, how were the car and gifts that she had received used. We will reach a conclusion only with a proper probe.”
“The investigation is going on to ascertain all the links, people involved in the main conspiracy and people who accepted gifts were aware about his background or not,” he told the publication.
