Pinky Irani, who had apparently introduced Bollywood actors Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, appeared before the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police on Thursday in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case.
Irani, who is believed to be a close aide of Sukesh, appeared before EOW officials for the second day in a row after she was questioned for around 8 hours on Wednesday. Notably, actor Jacqueline Fernandez also joined the questioning by the EOW of Delhi Police in the alleged 200 crore scam on Wednesday.
According to sources, Jacqueline and Pinki Irani engaged in a war of words during the Delhi Police interrogation on Wednesday.
The EOW sources said, while the two were being interrogated face-to-face, they kept arguing and accusing each other of lying for around two hours.
Pinki accused Jacqueline of accepting gifts from Sukesh, despite knowing that he is behind bars on charges of cheating people of 200 crores.
NORA FATEHI GRILLED FOR OVER 5 HRS IN EXTORTION CASE
Meanwhile, actor Nora Fatehi on Thursday also appeared before the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
The questioning of Nora was done a day after the Delhi Police EOW officials summoned actor Jacqueline Fernandez in the same case.
Earlier on September 2, Nora Fatehi was grilled by the EOW officials for over nine hours and was asked roughly 50 questions.
Police officials said that questioning so far has surfaced that Nora and Jacqueline Fernandez, who has also been linked with Sukesh Chandrashekhar, were both unaware of each other receiving gifts.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar has been accused of running an extortion racket worth Rs 200 crore when he was lodged in Rohini jail, from Aditi Singh, the wife of jailed former Ranbaxy owner Shivinder Singh, posing as officials from the union law ministry and the PMO, on the pretext of getting her husband out on bail.
On the other hand, Jacqueline accused Pinki of lying. She said she had no idea about Sukesh›s background. Both of them reportedly abused each other, after which police had to intervene.
The questioning ended after 8 hours. The sources said Jacqueline has not been called for questioning on Thursday and will be called by EOW when the need arises. Delhi Police prepared a questionnaire of 100 odd questions to ask Jaqueline.
