Recently some new revelations have come in the money laundering case related to thug Sukesh Chandrashekhar. It has been learned that after Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi, there were three more Bollywood actresses on the target of thug Sukesh. According to reports, investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has found that Sara Ali Khan, Jhanvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar were also on Sukesh’s target.
In the ED investigation, Sukesh has named Sara, Jhanvi and Bhumi. Sukesh also told that he had WhatsApp messaged Sara Ali Khan on May 2021 and named his name as Suraj Reddy. In these messages, Sukesh told Sara that he wanted to gift her a car. At the same time, Sukesh had also said that his CEO Mrs Irani tried to contact her several times, but he could not succeed. Let us tell you that Mrs. Irani is an associate of Sukesh Chandrashekhar who used to convince actresses to have a conversation with Sukesh.
Sukesh then targeted Jhanvi Kapoor through his wife Leena Maria Paul. Leena met Janhvi for the first time by becoming the owner of the saloon and also invited the actress for the opening of her salon in Bengaluru on July 19, 2021. Without knowing it, Jhanvi said yes to inaurgate the salon and took Rs 18.94 lakh as fee in her account. Later Jhanvi showed her bank account details to ED.
Bhumi Pednekar also fell in the same trap of Sukesh. Pinky Irani approached Bhumi in January 2021. Pinky introduces herself as HR of Nude Express Post to Bhumi. Pinky tells Bhumi that her company’s group chairman Sukesh Chandrashekhar is her big fan. He wants to talk to her about a very big project. Along with this, Pinky also said that Sukesh wants to gift her a car too.
A few days later, Sukesh contacted Bhumi and introduced himself as Shekhar and said that he wanted to gift her a project and a car. Bhumi told ED during interrogation that she had not received any gift from Sukesh alias Shekhar.
The case is based on an FIR registered against Sukesh and others in the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police for alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and extortion of around Rs 200 crore.
The ED in its statement after the raid had said, “Sukesh Chandrashekhar is the mastermind of this fraud. He has been a part of the crime world since the age of 17. The ED seized Sukesh’s sea-facing bungalow in Chennai on August 24. 82.5 lakh in cash, 2 kg gold and over a dozen luxury cars were seized from his bungalow. The ED had also recorded Jacqueline’s statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act in this case sometime back.
