Jacqueline Fernandez has taken legal action by filing a plea in the Delhi High Court in connection to the Rs 200 crore extortion case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Fernandez seeks the dismissal of the case against her by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asserting that all accusations are baseless. She claims to be a victim of Sukesh's targeted attack and alleges deception not only by Sukesh but also by Aditi Singh, another individual implicated in the case.

In the filed plea, Jacqueline Fernandez contends her innocence, stating that there is no evidence indicating her involvement in assisting Sukesh in money laundering. She argues that she cannot be prosecuted under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The actress has been making headlines for her alleged connection to the extortion case, where she is accused of receiving gifts linked to the purported extortion of Rs 200 crore from Aditi Singh, the wife of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Singh.
