After actor Jacqueline Fernandez was interrogated by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing into the ₹200-crore extortion case against conman Sukesh Chandrashekar on Wednesday, summons have been issued against Nora Fatehi. She is expected to join the interrogation on Thursday, the police said.

Special Commissioner of Police (Crime and EOW) Ravindra Yadav said Ms. Fernandez was questioned regarding the gifts that she took from Chandrashekar. Pinky Irani, who had introduced Ms. Fernandez to Chandrashekar was also called, Special CP said.

Over 50 questions were put forward. During interrogation, follow-up questions were also asked. Ms. Fernandez was grilled for nine hours. “Initially, she wasn’t aware of his activities, but later, she did,” he added.

A senior police officer said that after the news of Chandrashekar’s arrest came into public domain, she had deleted pictures and other evidences from her phone. “Pinky was questioned separately. Later, they were confronted,” the officer added.

“We interrogated her regarding her alleged links with the conman. Since most of the evidences are in public domain, she couldn’t deny her links with him,” the officer added.
