Bollywood Actor Jacqueline Fernandez, who was named in the Rs.200 crore (CAD $32,780,000) money laundering case supposedly spearheaded by infamous conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, was granted bail by the Patiala House court in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Fernandez is currently under investigation by the Enforcement Directorate as she is suspected to have taken expensive gifts from Chandrasekhar, despite knowing about the illegal ways he accrued his wealth. She was also previously granted bail on a personal bond of 2 lakh by the court.

ED stated in the chargesheet that the actor “consciously chose to overlook” Chandrasekhar’s involvement in criminal activities while “enjoying”  valuables, jewellery and costly gifts, and chartered flights given to her by the main accused.

Fernandez’s lawyer Prashant Patil had previously stated that the actor is innocent and is ready to fight for her dignity “by following the due process of law.”

Patil had also cited a handwritten letter by Chandrasekhar that claimed that Jacqueline had no fault in the case.

“It’s very, very unfortunate that Jacqueline has been made an accused in the PMLA (money laundering) case… We were in a relationship and if I have given her and her family gifts, what is their fault… She never asked me for anything except loving her and standing by her, ” read the letter that was released to media outlets by Chandrasekhar’s lawyer.
