New Delhi: Actor Jacqueline Fernandez who is one of the accused in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others, on Wednesday, moved an application in a Delhi Court seeking permission to travel to Dubai from January 27 to 30, to attend the PepsiCo India conference. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought time to file its reply. The court listed the matter to be heard on January 27.
Fernandez on December 22 withdrew her application seeking to travel to Dubai as her travel program was rescheduled. The counsel for the ED also opposed the plea and said it will not be viable for her to travel to Bahrain at this juncture.
Fernandez was granted regular bail in the case on November 15, 2022.
The plea stated Ms Fernandez has been invited to attend the PepsiCo India Conference in Dubai as a star performer for a concert scheduled on Sunday, January 29.
Fernandez was earlier permitted by the Delhi high court on May 31 last year to travel abroad for the IIFA awards subject to certain conditions.
‘Kick’ actor has been barred from leaving the country after she was named in the charge sheet as one of the accused by the ED in connection with an ongoing money laundering case.
