In connection with the 200-crore extortion case being investigated by central agencies, Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi has filed a defamation suit in a Delhi court against fellow actor Jacqueline Fernandez and some media organisations.
Jacqueline Fernandez has been designated as the “accused 1” in the defamation suit.
“It has become clear that the aforementioned rivals, unable to compete fairly with the Complainant in the industry, have begun to try and tarnish her reputation, which would cause her loss of work,” Fatehi stated in the suit.
“That the complainant is offended by defamatory remarks made by the accused persons against the complainant, resulting in the filing of this complaint.” It should be stated again that these defamatory remarks were made.
It should be reiterated that the Accused No. 1 made the defamatory remarks, which were then carried forward and circulated by the other accused persons, all of whom were acting in connivance with each other, and a conspiracy by the Accused No. l to ensure the Complainant’s financial, social, and personal downfall was batched, and enacted by the said actions,” it added.
Meanwhile, a Delhi court adjourned the hearing in the money laundering case against Fernandez and Chandrashekar by one week on Monday.
After hearing from the counsel representing Fernandez that she would receive complete copies of the charge sheet and other documents from the Enforcement Directorate, special judge Shailendra Malik postponed the case until December 20.
During the brief hearing, Fernandez also appeared in court. The actress was granted regular bail by the court on November 15. She was not arrested in connection with the case.
It had taken cognizance of a supplementary charge sheet filed by the ED on August 31 and summoned Fernandez to appear before the court.
Fernandez, who was summoned several times by the ED as part of the investigation, is named as an accused in the supplementary charge sheet.
The ED has also questioned Fatehi in connection with the same case.
Chandrasekhar was allegedly running the extortion and cheating ring with the help of jail officials and some associates outside.
