Jacqueline's Lawyer responds to Nora’s Defamation suit - f

"She was being falsely implicated by the ED."

A day after Nora Fatehi filed a defamation case against Jacqueline Fernandez, the latter’s lawyer has spoken out about it.

Nora and Jacqueline were both questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) over the last few months in connection with a Rs 200-crore extortion case connected to conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

It was reported on December 12, 2022, that Nora had filed a defamation suit against Jacqueline and alleged that the latter had made “defamatory imputations for malicious reasons”.

According to Nora Fatehi’s plea:

“Jacqueline sought to criminally defame the complainant to destroy her career… since they are both working in the same industry and have similar backgrounds, amongst other reasons.”

The defamatory case against Jacqueline is filed over the latter’s written pleading before the court.

She submitted that “she was being falsely implicated by the ED while celebs such as Nora Fatehi who had also received gifts from Sukesh had been made witnesses.”

However, on December 13, the Housefull 3 actor’s lawyer responded to these claims.

In an interview, advocate Prashant Patil said: “Jacqueline has not made any statement in front of any electronic or print media against Nora or for that matter, any other person.

“She has consciously avoided talking about the ED proceedings.

“To date, she has maintained the sanctity of law and because the matter is sub-judice she has always avoided speaking in front of the print and social media.”

He added: “Having said that, we’ve not received any official copy of the suit filed by Nora.

“Once we receive it or an order of the Honourable Court, we will respond to it legally.”

The ED questioned Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi many times about the case.

Both the actresses had recorded their statements.

It was also reported that Jacqueline Fernandez was also dating the conman.

The con man was allegedly running the cheating and extortion racket in connivance with jail officials and some associates outside.

While Jacqueline has been named as an accused by the ED in their supplementary charge sheet, Nora has also been questioned multiple times.

Sukesh Chandrasekhar and Leena Maria Paul were arrested by the ED under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act over an alleged extortion racket being run from Tihar Jail in Delhi.

On November 30, Delhi Police arrested Pinky Irani and produced her before the concerned court.
