Canadian dancer and Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi, who was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with an extortion case, issued a statement on Friday claiming she was not part of any money laundering activity.

Nora Fatehi was questioned for over eight hours on Thursday by the financial probe agency at its Delhi office for her alleged association with Sukesh Chandrasekhar, an accused in the Rs 200 crore extortion case.

“Nora Fatehi has been the victim around the case and being a witness, she is co-operating and helping the officers in the investigation. We would like to make it very clear that she has not been a part of any money laundering activity, she does not know or have any personal connection with the accused and has been called by the ED to strictly help with the investigation,” said a statement issued on behalf of Nora Fatehi.

On Friday, the ED confronted Nora Fatehi with Sukesh Chandrasekhar. During the confrontation, both were asked about their meetings and transactions, sources said.

According to sources, Nora Fatehi had attended an event on the invitation of Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s wife Leena Maria Paul. She was allegedly given expensive gifts worth crores by Sukesh at the event.

“Nora Fatehi has been the victim around the case and being a witness, she is co-operating and helping the officers in the investigation. We would like to make it very clear that she has not been a part of any money laundering activity, she does not know or have any personal connection with the accused and has been called by the ED to strictly help with the investigation,” said a statement issued on behalf of Nora Fatehi.

Sources told India Today that Jacqueline Fernandez’s statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in the cheating case lodged against Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who is in ED custody with wife Leena Maria Paul, has been accused of extorting 200 crore from a businessman over a period of one year (May 2020 – June 2021). He also has over 20 other cases of extortion registered against him and operated a racket from inside his jail cell.
