Actor Jacqueline Fernandez has taken legal action against alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, filing a complaint with Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora and the Special Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch). The complaint details harassment and threats Jacqueline has faced from Chandrashekhar, who is currently incarcerated.
In her letter to the police chief, Jacqueline describes her ordeal of psychological pressure and targeted intimidation campaigns. She asserts that Chandrashekhar, despite being behind bars in Mandoli Jail, continues to harass her through intimidating tactics in the public domain.
Jacqueline stresses the urgency of the situation, highlighting the threat to her safety and the integrity of legal processes. She calls for immediate intervention, urging the registration of an FIR under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) to ensure her protection as a prosecution witness in a case under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
The actor emphasizes the significance of witness protection in upholding the rule of law and the credibility of the justice system. She expresses concern over the compromise of witness protection principles, urging stringent measures to prevent further abuse.
This complaint follows Jacqueline’s previous legal actions to restrain Chandrashekhar from contacting her, including a court plea in December last year. The actor is a witness in an FIR being investigated by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) related to a ₹200 crore money laundering and extortion case linked to Chandrashekhar.
Jacqueline’s proactive stance against harassment and intimidation underscores the importance of safeguarding witnesses and upholding the integrity of legal proceedings. As the investigation unfolds, authorities are expected to take necessary measures to address Jacqueline’s concerns and ensure justice prevails.
