On Tuesday, the Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez was served with a summons to appear in court in connection with a money laundering case involving the con artist Sukesh Chandrashekar. The case involves a total of Rs. 200 crore.

Now, according to the latest information available, the actress has been released on bond. Reportedly, the actress filed a bail petition, arguing that there was no need for her to remain in detention given that the investigation had already been concluded and the charge sheet had been submitted.

In the course of the investigation into the allegations of money laundering, Jacqueline Fernandez had been called as a witness by the Enforcement Directorate on multiple occasions. 

She had been identified as an accused for the very first time in the supplementary charge sheet, which said that she was a recipient of the money that had been extorted. An application for bail had been made by the actress, but the ED objected to it on the grounds that there was a risk that the actress might flee the country.
