New Delhi:

Pinky Irani, a close aide of alleged fraudster Sukesh Chandrasekhar, introduced him to Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez and played a key role in clearing Rs 200 crore extorted from her, Delhi Police told a court on Monday.

The Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police made these allegations in a supplementary chargesheet filed before Additional Sessions Judge Shailendra Malik.

The court is likely to take a decision on taking cognizance of the charge sheet on Tuesday.

Ms Fernandez, who is yet to be named as an accused in the case, also appeared in the court. He is an accused in a money laundering probe related to the alleged scam.

The chargesheet alleged that Irani used to portray Chandrasekhar as a business tycoon and was instrumental in facilitating his meetings with some Bollywood personalities.

The latest supplementary report also states that the police have recorded statements of several people, including Bollywood actors Fernandez and Nora Fatehi.

Mumbai-based Irani was arrested by the EOW of Delhi Police in November 2022. Chandrasekhar, who is currently in jail, is accused of defrauding several people including high-profile individuals like Aditi Singh, wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh. Chandrasekhar and his associates allegedly took money from Aditi by posing as government officials and promised to get bail for her husband, who was jailed in a money laundering case.

Chandrasekhar allegedly persuaded Aditi to transfer money while he was lodged in Rohini Jail, posing as a central government official over spoof calls and promising to arrange bail for her husband.
