Actress Nora Fatehi summoned by ED in PMLA case


Actress Nora Fatehi has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with Rs 200-crore money laundering case against con artists Sukesh Chandrasekar and his actor-wife Leena Paul. Fatehi, 29, on Thursday appeared before by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the case.

Chandrasekar and Paul have already been arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly duping the family of Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh of around ₹ 200 crore. The Delhi Police FIR accuses Chandrasekar and Paul of criminal conspiracy, cheating, and extortion.

In August, the ED had raided some of Chandrashekhar's premises and seized a sea-facing bungalow in Chennai, Rs 82.5 lakh cash and over a dozen luxurious cars.  It had claimed in a statement that Chandrashekhar is a "known conman" and is being probed by the Delhi Police in a case of alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and extortion to the tune of about Rs 200 crore.

The agency had earlier questioned actor Jacqueline Fernandes in this case. She is expected to depose again before the agency on Thursday.
